SIUC receives alcohol education grant from NCAA

CARBONDALE, IL (KFVS) - Southern Illinois University Carbondale received a $30,000 grant from the National Collegiate Athletic Association to fund an alcohol education program.

The grant will find the SalukiChoices program which is a collaborative effort involving Student Health Services, Saluki Athletics and the Department of Health Education and Recreation in the College of Education and Human Services.

While the grant comes from the NCAA, the goal is to encourage healthy behaviors and reduce harm related to alcohol use and misuse campus-wide.

To help promote healthy behaviors related to alcohol, the program will include: fun music videos or music parodies incorporating the campaign's messages, a social media campaign, print materials and other giveaways.
