What is Social Host Training?

Social Host Training is a collaborative effort between Owls Care Health Promotion and Fraternity & Sorority Life, and is intended to empower chapters and their members to host social gatherings with alcohol responsibly. In this training, students will review responsible hosting tips, discuss brief alcohol education, learn how to respond in emergency situations involving alcohol, and take the Ethical Bystander pledge. The training is intended to enhance the community’s risk management abilities. This training is not intended to train students or give them the authority to be licensed bartenders or event security. The desired outcomes of the program are:

  • Understand basic policies, procedures and best practices for hosting events with alcohol

  • Understand the role of a Safety Monitor

  • Agree they have a responsibility to their organization (and greater Greek/university community) to adhere to the policies, procedures and best practices associated with hosting events with alcohol

What is Making Healthy Choices about Alcohol an ASTP
The Alcohol Skills Training Program is an alcohol abuse prevention program. It was developed to promote harm reduction by teaching the knowledge and skills necessary to drink with less risk should someone choose to drink. It is based on facts while also including the input of the students to make the content relevant to anyone attending the training. The course educates on alcohol & effects of drinking, may challenge ones own beliefs about drinking, and provides harm reduction strategies for how to drink safer if  if someone chooses to drink.
