About This Resource

High-risk drinking on college campuses—and the associated hazing, assaults, falls, and fatalities involved—remains an ongoing challenge for risk managers. Making alcohol prevention practices a priority for campus officials beyond the student affairs office can better prepare an institution to deal with the broad legal, financial, and risk management implications of student alcohol use.  

UE analyzed its hundreds of alcohol-related claims and found that alcohol use by the perpetrator, the victim, or both was a factor in approximately 30 percent of all assault claims and claims involving alcohol cost on average 25 percent more than claims not involving alcohol. Heavy drinking rates among college students have remained virtually unchanged for the past 15 years and administrators continue to witness a significant change for the worse in students’ alcohol consumption immediately after they arrive on campus.
