PIP was created in 2000 and since its founding, PIP has provided training and networking to its members through monthly meetings, assisted in developing a campus-community coalition on each member campus, annual evaluation of alcohol and drug use behaviors and related consequences, and held five drive-in workshops and four annual conferences. Partners in Prevention is funded by the Missouri Division of Alcohol and Drug Abuse with additional funding from the Missouri Department of Transportation’s Highway Safety Division, the Greater Kansas City Community Foundation’s Port Authority Problem Gaming Fund, and the Department of Education.
