Core actions recommended for higher education institutions

In order to reduce the number of students who decide to use drugs and reduce the harm experienced by those students who have chosen to use drugs, HEIs are recommended to undertake the following four core actions:

1 Each higher education institution should develop a Drug and Alcohol Policy specific to the HEI.

2 Each higher education institution should develop and implement a Drug and Alcohol Action Plan specific to the HEI and their students

3 Each higher education institution should assign to a Senior Officer of the HEI the responsibility for leading the development of the Policy and the implementation of the Action Plan.

4 Each higher education institution should facilitate student engagement with the collection of national level data on drug use in HEIs.
