The Art and Science of Coalition Building

(Part 1 of the Healthy Campus Coalition/Health Promotion Section two-part webinar series on coalition building)

March 28, 2013
Presenters: Nikki Brauer, MS, CWPM, COEE (Illinois State University), Jane Croeker, BSSW, LWS (University of North Dakota), and Joy Himmel, PsyD, PMHCNS-BC.LPC (Penn State University-Altoona)

The “art” of coalition building involves careful consideration of the establishment of team members who can engage and sustain meaningful planning-to-action in meeting healthy campus objectives. Determining who these key stakeholders are, what triggers their motivation, seeking and attaining high-level administrative support, assessing your campus culture, the importance of diversity, and the unique differences within institutions of larger or smaller enrollments are among worthwhile components to crafting coalitions. This webinar will share best practices, lessons learned, and “landmines” to avoid when considering a coalition to address healthy campus objectives.

Presenters: Lisa Currie, MSEd (Northwestern University) and Eric Davidson, PhD, MCHES, CSADP (Eastern Illinois University)

Creating widespread change on complex issues such as high risk alcohol use and sexual violence requires a multidimensional approach and sustained effort. An effectively designed coalition can provide the unified leadership required to create real change at the individual, campus and community levels. Dr. Eric Davidson and Lisa Currie will present information on how building your coalition’s efforts around environmental management strategies, data collection, and current evidence-based strategies will support a sustained and successful coalition effort which shares responsibility, resources, risk and rewards.
