Student union and P.E.I. Liquor Control Commission in partnership
The University of Prince Edward Island has partnered with its student union and P.E.I. Liquor Control Commission on a responsible alcohol consumption campaign called Keep it Social.
“We’re excited to launch this highly-visual and provocative campaign at UPEI, to build awareness and to start a dialogue about high-risk alcohol consumption and the associated harms,” said Haley Doherty, UPEI residence life co-ordinator.
The partnership started in Nova Scotia between the Nova Scotia Liquor Commission and Nova Scotia universities. It’s a branded, student-led, social responsibility initiative.
Discussions have begun to expand the program to New Brunswick and Newfoundland and Labrador.
The ‘social vs. sloppy’ on-campus campaign demonstrates normalized versus at-risk behaviour in situations relevant to students.
Keepitsocial.ca provides broader information around responsible use and behaviour. Visit any on-campus advertising placed in the UPEI residences, at the campus pub, The Wave, and throughout the W.A. Murphy Student Centre.
