The following resources are offered to the staff and faculty members of our member institutions for educational purposes as they seek to learn more about various topics in higher education.  The resources are meant to be relevant and sound resources in the various areas.  In some cases, the resource may appear to be dated, but is actually still a much-used source.  For example, the federal government invested in research to a greater degree in the 90s related to understanding alcohol and other drug abuse on college campuses and formulating model prevention programs than in more recent decades.  So, while some of the below resources are older publications, the resources are still considered valid and effective.
