History of IATF and NCAAW

For years, university educators have been grappling with collegiate alcohol abuse in a variety of ways. The dilemma -- respecting the adult sensibilities and independence of young people while honoring the law and the institution's "duty to care" -- has become evermore difficult to solve. The demographics alone are daunting: Some 15 million students now attend more than 3500 institutions. How to best deal with the complex issues, responsibilities, and liabilities, how to be an instrument for change in the prevailing collegiate environment, is the challenge facing all university people.
