Winona State University has been selected to participate in the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Service Administration’s “Strategic Prevention Framework Partnerships for Success” grant through the Minnesota Department of Human Services. The Partnership for Success grant is a five-year award focusing on preventing underage drinking among persons 18-20 and marijuana use among persons aged 18-25.

WSU is one of seven Minnesota colleges and universities participating in the Partnership for Success grant. The Strategic Prevention framework focuses on assessment, capacity, planning, implementation and evaluation. It will be tailored to the needs of WSU students, and will be managed by a coalition of key stakeholders interested in preventing underage drinking and marijuana use. The framework will assist WSU in developing a strategic plan that will identify evidence-based strategies to reduce rates of underage drinking and marijuana use, with evaluation of the program at each step of the process.

WSU’s Health & Wellness Promotion Coordinator, Kate Hansen MPH CHES, will serve as the project coordinator and will solicit student and community involvement in the SPF process.

For more information contact Hansen at 507-457-5619 or kaehansen@winona.edu.
