The National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism at the NIH has long been recognized as a national leader in research on harmful drinking among college students. NIAAA developed the site College Drinking: changing the culture as a one-stop resource for comprehensive research-based information on issues related to alcohol abuse and binge drinking among college students. The site provides information for college administrators, parents, and students.
