Posted on November 13th, 2014

A situational assessment is like a “snapshot of the present” that can be used to plan for the future. It involves gathering, analysing, synthesising, discussing and communicating data for the purpose of informing planning decisions about goals, objectives, audiences, promising strategies and activities. Since the goal of CCSU is “changing the culture,” a relevant situational assessment must consider “culture” and the processes for “culture change.”

This webinar explored  basic questions underpinning a campus situational assessment around the culture of substance use:

  1. What is culture?
  2. Why consider culture change?
  3. How do we measure culture?

It also looked at factors that impact situational assessment around culture, including cultural diversity and culture and the individual. The webinar was led by Dan Reist and included discussion with the CCSU community members.
