360 Proof is a comprehensive evidence-based program that was created to help universities reduce the consequences of high-risk alcohol use and enhance collaboration between campus prevention team students and their support systems.
Hallmark to the success of 360 Proof is the commitment to enhancing collaboration between campus prevention team, students and their support systems.
Review and Enhance Your Prevention Strategies using the campus self-study tool. Step 3 will help you assess specific alcohol issues, behavioral trends, success, and gaps of your current prevention efforts in your specific campus context.
The National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA) has been instrumental in compiling research on college alcohol prevention, targeting both individual students and your campus environment. Utilizing CollegeAIM, campuses work to align strategies to maximize success through step 5.
Studies show the personalized feedback index can have a significant effect on students’ alcohol use. This includes a reduction in total number of drinks consumed per week, frequency of alcohol use per month, and frequency of drinking after one year.
360 Proof is an eight-step prevention process essential to reducing high-risk alcohol use and consequences. While you may use the program resources in any order that suits your campus, the eight-step process provides a roadmap to schools seeking specific guidance.
Learn the Process
The first step of 360 Proof is to review all the resources available to you. This process includes three primary tools, and supplementary materials.
Build a Team
As you build your 360 Proof team, think about who will make the best allies because they have a stake in improving campus health and safety. This step provides guidance on how to build the strongest team for your institution.
Understand Campus Alcohol Use
Creating a healthy campus starts with having a clear picture of the current campus environment. The Campus Self Study will help institutions assess specific alcohol issues, behavioral trends, successes, and gaps in your current prevention efforts.
When establishing goals and objectives, specificity is key. But exactly which goals and objectives should guide your campus prevention efforts? This step prepared you to answer that question.
Select Evidence-Based Strategies
When you have completed your Campus Self Study and established specific goals and objectives, you will be ready to decide what evidence-based individually- or environmentally-focused programs or policies to implement to make the desired changes.
Plan Your Actions
In addition to planning the implementation of prevention and intervention activities, now is the time to plan how you will evaluate those activities. Step six offers guidance on this subject.
Carry Out Your Actions
With the Step 6 Worksheet to guide you, you now have an action plan for each strategy. Follow the steps you’ve developed — it’s your recipe for success.
Evaluate Your Actions
You started with understanding student alcohol use and consequences, set goals and objectives, chose evidence-based strategies, and them implemented them. How did it go? The answer will be found in your evaluation.
This free and confidential tool allows students to uncover and examine the impact and consequences of their alcohol-related behavior. It also offers practical strategies for reducing the negative consequences of high-risk alcohol use.
As you implement and support 360 Proof on campus, we can provide extra support. Ask for assistance, attend a 3for60 Learning Collaborative Webinar, or attend a conference associated learning session.
