TCNJ has been using the TIPS program for the past five years and has certified over 700 students. TIPS for the University is a two-hour program that helps students make sound choices when faced with difficult decisions about alcohol use. Working together with other students and administrators, students address drinking behaviors specific to their schools and develop intervention techniques appropriate to their campuses. All sessions are taught by certified TIPS trainers using video and printed materials to facilitate discussion of the course content. The primary goal of the TIPS for the University program is to provide students with the knowledge and confidence necessary to reduce high-risk drinking.

"This program is successful due to the commitment of our partners on campus. As a result, we have been able to train a significant segment of our student leaders and secure funding to train even more students in the coming year," said Angela Lauer Chong, J.D., TCNJ's Assistant Vice President and Dean of Students. "The skills obtained from the training have empowered our students to step in and intervene when they see risky behavior associated with alcohol use, and has ultimately created safer social environments for our students."
