AOD Biennial Report & Executive Summary

DFSCA Biennial Review & Executive Report


The University of Michigan-Flint (UM-Flint) Alcohol, Tobacco and Other Drug (ATOD) Committee conducted the DFSCA biennial review which included AOD prevalence rates, incident rates, needs assessments and trend data analysis. Results of American College Health Association health survey found that only 1.8% of students reported alcohol use and 0.7% reported drug use as contributing factors to “Academic Impact.” Alcohol, tobacco, marijuana and all other drugs combined actual use was found to be much lower than the perceived use by their peers. Overall, the “any use within the last 30 days” of alcohol, marijuana and other drug by UM-Flint students was lower than the reference groups, but smoking was slightly higher (12.2% vs 10.6%). The Cooperative Institutional Research Program (CIRP) survey results also found smoking by male students at UM-Flint to be slightly higher than at the comparable institution, but drinking beer, wine and liquor was about the same.
The review also included AOD policies, an inventory of enforcement and compliance, and related outcomes data. In addition, a comprehensive inventory of AOD programs, interventions, related processes was compiled including individual based programs/interventions, group based programs/interventions, and universal or entire population based programs/interventions.
