The MCPP is a connected group of higher education professionals who address health and safety issues on our various campuses. We do this by providing professional development & networking opportunities, assessment tools, resources for evidence -based programming, & research on prevention best-practices. We represent both private and public colleges and universities in the state of Mississippi.
To sustain a statewide network of staff, faculty, and students empowering our campuses and communities to engage in positive health and safety behaviors.
To connect and support institutions of higher education in Mississippi to address campus health and safety issues.
Mississippi Coalition of Partners in Prevention (MCPP) is a group of universities and community colleges in Mississippi that have joined forces to collaborate in planning, implementing, and evaluating researched best-practices for alcohol and other prevention programming to support education/prevention and safety for college students. Membership to the MCPP is free of charge, and all institutions of higher education (universities and community colleges) in Mississippi are invited to participate.
MCPP provides training, resources, and support for members. The pursuit of external funding is a priority, which will allow us to continue to provide prevention program guidance, as well as opportunities for training and meetings. Only institutions that have completed the “Membership Application” will be eligible to participate in any collaboration opportunities provided by MCPP.

Attend meetings and conference calls each year.
Distribute prevention materials to campus staff and students, as appropriate.
Conduct alcohol education/prevention and general programming at your institution and
share successes/failures with MCPP members.
