|Wesley Perkins, professor of sociology, and David Craig, professor of chemistry, recently received a grant of $74,454 from the U.S. Department of Education to continue and enhance the Alcohol Education Project, a project they direct that has been previously supported by the Department of Education. The Project provides education and prevention initiatives addressing alcohol use and abuse for the HWS community, regional coalitions of high schools, and institutions of higher education nationwide. This most recent grant is part of the "Model Programs in Higher Education" competition designed to identify the most effective programs in the country. Competition winners will have their programs promoted at colleges and universities and also at high schools throughout the country. Of special note, the other six recipient institutions of this model program competition were large universities- the Colleges' Project was the only one recognized from a small liberal arts institution.||
