Alcohol Initiatives and the Office of Student Development support initiatives to provide entertainment options to students during times when high risk drinking often occurs.
Funding support is available for programs or events that take place Thursday, Friday or Saturday nights between the hours of 9:00 p.m. and 1:00 a.m. Additionally, funding may be available for events on other days and times, provided that these events are designed to provide a healthier alternative to a high-risk drinking event. Examples could include a pre-Marquette Madness, a St. Patrick's Day party, or events occurring the evening prior to a day off of school or events scheduled during pre-gaming hours.
Certain guidelines for events that qualify for funding do apply. Funding is provided through a CHOICES grant from the NCAA. Funding is limited; therefore organizations are encouraged to apply for funding early in the academic year.
Steps to the funding process:
Note: If you fail to turn in all required paperwork to the Coordinator for Alcohol Programs within 1 week after holding the event funding will be denied.
If you have further questions, please contact Sara Johnson, Coordinator of Alcohol Programs at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Each student arrives to campus with different experiences with alcohol. Whether you have experience with alcohol or not, or whether you plan to incorporate alcohol into your college experience or not, the Alcohol Initiatives program strives to give you the information you need to make the right decision for you.
