This course provides knowledge and practice of comprehensive community-based prevention planning and implementation, with special consideration given to the nature, mechanics, and challenges of effective collaboration. Additionally, this course will help the student develop the capacity to review and apply current research-based practice to the planning process. This course focuses primarily on projects, coalitions, community mobilization, and advocacy rather than simply on programs, and will consider issues of diverse populations within the larger community.

Please note: This is a "self-support" course. This self-support fee listed above replaces the cost of regular tuition and is paid regardless of student residency status or total course load. Course fees are subject to change at anytime. For more information on tuition consult the Registrar's Office. Students using financial aid, VA benefits, or other scholarships should review the details of their financial package to confirm that self-support fee courses are covered.
