A collaborative network dedicated to improving the health of College students.

NCHIP's mission is to improve student health at colleges and universities through the application of population health solutions. Building on the Institute for Healthcare Improvement's Breakthrough Series learning collaborative model, NCHIP convenes groups of institutions to collectively address student health problems by bringing evidence into practice and measuring outcomes.

Four out of every ten college students in America are affected by high-risk drinking.

1,800 college students die each year from incidents related to alcohol.

Alcohol upsets fluid balance vital to nerve and muscle performance.

Research has linked alcohol abuse on campus with poor academic performance, personal injuries, sexual assault, and adult alcoholism.

The Learning Collaborative on High-Risk Drinking

Formed in 2011, the Learning Collaborative on High-Risk Drinking is the inaugural initiative of the National College Health Improvement Program.

A new way of looking at an old problem: Colleges and universities from around the country are joining forces to address the problem of high-risk drinking on college campuses. This unprecedented initiative uses comprehensive evaluation and measurement techniques to identify and implement the most effective ways to tackle a problem that has persisted for more than four decades, and to help lessen the harms it causes.

What works. Where. Why. The teams in the collaborative work with improvement and measurement experts from The Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy & Clinical Practice along with nationally recognized faculty in alcohol harm prevention to bring population health solutions and quality improvement methods to bear on the problem of high-risk drinking. The teams use outcomes-based research to discover what programs work best, where they work, and why.

Dr. Jason Kilmer, NCHIP Faculty Member, offers his expertise and experience in prevention and intervention efforts for alcohol use by college students as a resource to the learning collaborative teams. Watch video

Shared learning and discovery. The collaborative relies on the Institute for Healthcare Improvement's Breakthrough Series model. Participating institutions meet for a series of face-to-face learning sessions to share lessons learned and outcomes. In between the learning sessions – during the "action periods" - campus improvement teams engage in local "plan-do-study-act" cycles to implement and test efforts to address high-risk drinking on their campuses.
