    Kaplan University-Omaha Joins Forces in The Prevention of At-Risk Drinking

    Kaplan University -Omaha Campus President Jeremy Brunssen and Academic Dean Kara Steffey recently attended the Omaha Collegiate Consortium (OCC) meeting to learn more about the collective effort of Omaha Universities to address at-risk drinking, and the plans to implement prevention strategies on campuses, as well as in the community.


    Omaha Director of Student Services Rebecca Jacobs has represented Kaplan University at the consortium for several years. The group has grown and now includes eight local colleges and universities. While the populations at each institution differ, the common goals are the same, to include educating students on risk of over-consumption and empowering students to make smart choices about their own behaviors, as well as feeling confident in sharing information with their peers and families.


    With the support of campus leadership, the OCC plans to increase activity at the Omaha community level in 2014 through coordination with law enforcement and community officials, as well as community-wide campaigns.  


    The OCC works closely with area prevention coalitions, to include the LiveWise coalition which Kaplan University-Omaha has also worked with to hold campus activities and educational events. Kaplan University-Omaha recently hosted a LiveWise meeting at the campus for over 20 community members.
