Higher Education Center to Close


The Higher Education Center for Alcohol, Drug Abuse, and Violence Prevention (HEC), which has been a valuable resource for college prevention professionals for nearly 20 years, announced in June that the U.S. Department of Education would cease to fund it after August 31, 2012.

According to Assistant Center Director Tracy A. Tlumac, Ed.D., HEC will convene one more training institute, in October: “Preventing the Nonmedical Use of Prescription Drugs Among College Students.” The web site will also continue to be available through October 31.
