Do It 4 You Social Norms Campaign

Student Wellness Services developed an alcohol and other drug social norms campaign based on data from the Spring 2017 UNI National College Health Assessment. The data shows that many UNI students greatly overestimate the amount of high-risk drinking or drug use that occurs at UNI. Contrary to this belief, our data shows that many UNI students are making responsible and healthy choices related to alcohol and other drugs.

We are seeking to provide students with an accurate picture of alcohol and other drug use on campus in effort to influence healthy behaviors and reduce substance abuse at UNI. For questions or to learn more about the campaign, email
