The University of Iowa is trying to address drinking problems within the student body through its new Alcohol Harm Reduction Plan. The plan aims to maximize well-being and minimize the harms of hazardous drinking through a collaborative effort with the campus and Iowa City. The plan’s goals are driven by the following strategies: Reduce risky drinking and the harm it causes; provide tailored support for students on the continuum from abstinence to high-risk use; foster a culture of caring/integrity/and compliance; and, make harm reduction commitments an institutional priority. From 2019 to 2021, alcohol law violations by UI police decreased by 38 percent.
