Boosting Student Responsibility through a Tavern Owners Agreement
State University of New York at New Paltz
The Tavern Owners Agreement, originally
established in 1999, was facilitated by the College and strongly supported by town
and village officials. In addition to providing guidelines for self-monitoring their
business practices, efforts increased to educate students about responsible and
lawful consumption of alcohol and appropriate civic customer behavior as it
relates to their safety and academic success. The Agreement is complemented by
the innovative collaboration to promote a “Good Neighbor” initiative and “OneLess”
alcohol prevention campaign.

The College of New Jersey
Anti-Violence Initiatives (AVI) leads the campus effort to
address issues of sexual assault, domestic/dating violence, and stalking by
working with community partners to create a campus environment that values

victims/survivors; our objective is to establish a campus culture of wellness,
free from power-based personal violence, resulting in a safer living and
learning environment. AVI’s key prevention strategy is Green Dot, a
nationally-recognized, research-informed Bystander intervention program.

programs promote healthy relationship skills and prosocial bystander behavior.
