The Illinois Department of Human Services, the Illinois Higher Education Center (IHEC) for Alcohol, Other Drug and Violence Prevention, and the Core Institute together provide the Illinois Alcohol and Other Drug Statewide Core Survey. The purpose of the survey is to establish the current incidence and prevalence of alcohol and other drug use on Illinois 2 and 4-year college campuses; negative consequences associated with use; the relationship of alcohol and other drug use to campus climate issues; students’ perception of others’ use; beliefs regarding use; experiences of secondhand effects of others’ use; experiences of physical and sexual violence; and perceptions of risk related to use.
The Core Alcohol and Drug Survey is administered on a statewide basis in the spring semesters of even-numbered years. Thank you to all the respected institutions who participated in the 2022 CORE Survey, the 2022 report will be out soon. We are now recruiting for 2024. The registration link for the next survey will be posted soon.
