Environmental Scan

Our Environmental Scan, led by School of Public Health student Heather Davis, looked at how certain features of the U of S campus environment may influence student drinking and assessed student drinking behaviours on campus. Heather gathered data on student demographics, health, alcohol consumption, campus safety and student alcohol-related events.

The report will be made available soon, and it highlights that binge drinking is a University of Saskatchewan student health concern and that there is a need to address students’ risky drinking activities both on and off campus. These findings will be used in the future to develop collaborations with community members on and off the campus with the goal of decreasing the harms students experience from drinking too much.
