Posted on January 8th, 2015

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 in further depth questions underpinning a campus situational assessment around the culture of substance use:

  1. Why consider culture change?
  2. What is culture?
  3. Do we need to change the culture?
  4. Can we change the culture?
  5. Can we change the culture of substance use on campus?

It also looked at lessons learned from the National College Health Improvement Program (NCHIP) and looked at the goals of a culture change initiative. The webinar was led by Dan Reist and includes discussion with the CCSU community members.
