membersVACALC is a statewide professional affiliation group addressing alcohol, tobacco and other drug (ATOD) issues on the college campus.

We are professionals from throughout the state gathered to identify what can be done statewide to help maintain, and ideally increase, the attention given to alcohol abuse prevention on campuses and in their surrounding communities.

Here’s what we do:

  • Prevention Standards
  • Drive-in and on-line Workshops
  • Shared Resources
  • Institutional Self-Assessments
  • Professional Retreat

Throughout the year we sponsor free state-wide and regional drive-in trainings and workshops, and on-line webinars that bring together professional staff, students and researchers to discuss important issues and learn new skills.

VaCALC creates and curates resources that can be used and/or adapted to your campus. Resources include information sheets and brochures about ATODs, sample PowerPoint presentations on specific topics and for different campus populations, and email templates that can be used to communicate important issues with administrators.

VaCALC also creates materials that can be used for institutional self-assessments, including program reviews and student ATOD use.

Each year, we sponsor a free professional retreat for members to network, reflect, re-energize, and plan for the coming year.

Benefits of Joining:

  • Opportunities for collaboration with other colleges and university

VACALC is guided by a Steering Committee, with membership from a Coordinating Council and Regional Coordinators. Institutional affiliations and contact information can be found under Contacts.
