Aod Prevention In A Consensus Building Environment, Charles G. Eberly Feb 2009

Aod Prevention In A Consensus Building Environment, Charles G. Eberly

Charles G. Eberly

This paper is a proposal to carry out a systematic program evaluation of the Sigma Phi Epsilon EDGE New Member Program, and was submitted to the Department of Education for funding in February 2009. The letter I received from the DOE indicated that my proposal did not fully meet the criteria for the grant competition since the study included students from many campuses rather than being focused on prevention programming for just one campus. The proposal does, however, provide evidence that new member education on prevention among fraternity men within six weeks of their joining an organization is promising. Compare ...
