Nowhere in America are the effects of heavy episodic drinking more in evidence than at colleges and universities. Enforcing Underage Drinking Laws (EUDL) and preserving the lives those laws are designed to protect can be challenging in college communities. Beginning in 2008, the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) funded a EUDL College Discretionary Initiative to support and focus the efforts of colleges and their surrounding communities to reduce alcohol beverage availability and consumption by underage college students.

Use of technology is a cost-effective way to provide resources to law enforcement to support their underage drinking enforcement efforts. The UDETC offers a variety of distance-learning courses that present best practices and strategies for enforcement of underage drinking laws and prevention efforts to reduce underage drinking.
