Colleges, universities, and organizations that prioritize comprehensive and high-impact digital prevention strategies in critical areas such as mental health, diversity, substance misuse, sexual violence, and hazing deserve recognition. Each year, the Campus prevention Network evaluates over 1,000 colleges, universities, and national organizations against evidence-based prevention principles and awards the Seal of Prevention to those who demonstrate comprehensive commitment to a culture of well-being.

Making these efforts visible to prospective students and parents matters. 34% of high school students are more likely to attend a campus that has achieved the CPN Seal of Prevention, and institutions with the Seal have, on average, a 10% higher retention rate compared to non-Seal institutions. Join Lynn to learn more about the Seal of Prevention and the strategic impact of prevention programming across the student lifecycle. 

Presenter: Glenn Terry, Director of Outreach and Strategic Partnerships, NCAA Eligibility Center
