Partners in Prevention encourages each of its member campuses to implement strategies which change or improve laws and policies related to college health and safety. These policies could be federal, statewide, or local.
PIP believes that campus coalitions should have an active understanding of the lawmaking process in the state of Missouri as a critical step to understand the state laws and polices related to alcohol, drugs, mental health, gambling, and safe driving.
These resources can help campuses learn more about the lawmaking process and how to get involved individually, or advocate as a campus-community coalition.
