Seven Campuses Awarded Funding to Promote Safe Medication Taking Practices
The Zeta Tau Alpha Foundation, Generation Rx, and the Higher Education Center for Alcohol and Drug Misuse Prevention and Recovery have announced the recipients of the 2021-2022 ZTA Generation Rx mini-grant award.
This year, the number of grants increased from five to seven campuses, with each receiving $1,000 to support the dissemination and use of “Generation Rx University” educational resources. The goal is to educate undergraduates about safe medication practices through partnerships with campus student wellness offices or other campus groups. Campuses are required to partner with their Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life to provide at least 10 educational sessions, seven of which would directly focus on fraternities and sororities.
“Collegians today are facing an epidemic of prescription drug misuse and Zeta Tau Alpha is proud to sponsor Generation Rx to assist in providing education and awareness,” said Zeta Tau Alpha National President, Alicia Williams. “The battle with prescription drug misuse needs continued and ongoing support and we are committed to assisting campuses as they deliver prevention messages to their collegiate communities.”
Congratulations to the following campuses:
San Diego State University
University of Nebraska – Lincoln
University of Oklahoma
Southwest Prevention Center
The Higher Education Center will continue to administer the implementation grant process and offer technical assistance to Zeta Tau Alpha chapters in the use of Generation Rx University resources, as well as campus organizations receiving implementation grant funding. This is the fifth. cycle of this grant.
