first_imgShare Share via TwitterShare via FacebookShare via LinkedInShare via E-mail The coroner’s report concerning the death of Lynn Gordon Bailey Jr., as well as recent events at several other universities, tragically underscores the dangers associated with the misuse and abuse of alcohol. We are committed to doing everything we can to prevent such a tragedy from happening again. As announced last week, I have asked our campus and the Boulder community to launch a concerted attack on the misuse and abuse of alcohol, including intensified educational programming throughout our students’ college careers. We also are reviewing all aspects of Greek life, including the role of alcohol at social events. We recognize that we face difficult challenges in addressing the issue of alcohol abuse, but we must persevere — with the help of the entire campus and Boulder communities. —- Related Information: Chancellor’s State of the Campus Address: Remarks on Alcohol Issues CU-Boulder Administration Announces Early Responses To CU Student Death Statement On CU-Boulder Student Death By Chancellor Richard L.
