PLCB AWARDS CAMPUS GRANT

9/17/2010 —

Penn State Brandywine has been awarded a grant from the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board (PLCB) to support initiatives targeted at the prevention of under-age and dangerous drinking.

The $15,000 grant will allow the campus to expand its counseling and health services to respond to this need.

“Unfortunately, underage drinking and excessive alcohol consumption are still prevalent on college campuses. Penn State Brandywine is no different,” said Matthew Shupp, director of student affairs at the Brandywine campus. “These funds will have a direct impact on the counseling and health services we are able to provide to students facing such issues. We are extremely grateful to the PCLB for the opportunity.”

Since 1999, the PLCB has awarded more than $4.5 million in grants to 246 organizations to fund prevention programs focused on underage alcohol consumption, as well as initiatives supporting under-age drinking law-enforcement investigations.
