Perkins and Social Norms in American Sociological Association Monthly

Professor of Sociology Wes Perkins and the social norms program at the Colleges were featured in an article in Footnotes, the professional monthly publication of the American Sociological Association.

The article, titled “Sociological Approaches Hold Promise to Curb Campus Drinking “ was in the December 2002, volume 30, no 9, issue, and compared Perkins' work with that of Henry Wechsler, director of College Alcohol Studies at the Harvard School of Public Health and lead researcher of their college alcohol study and David Hanson, who hosts an award-winning Web site called Alcohol: problems and solutions (www2.potsdam.edu/alcohol-info) at the State University of New York-Potsdam, where he is a faculty member.
