New Hampshire's Dartmouth College has attracted 18 more partners in its national initiative to reduce binge drinking on college campuses.
Thirteen other colleges and universities had signed on to the project when Dartmouth president Jim Yong Kim announced it in May. Officials expected to add another six or so by the time the project got under way this month, but now have a total of 32 participating campuses.
The project will bring together teams from each campus three times in 18 months to share their experiences and help one another test strategies back home.
Other New England schools that have joined the initiative include the universities of New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Vermont, Boston University, Brown University, Wellesley College, Wesleyan University and Yale University.
