History of the WAVE Program At New Mexico State University
WAVE is the product of two former NMSU programs: CHOICES, an alcohol abuse prevention program, and the Violence Intervention and Prevention (VIP) Program. ASNMSU, which currently helps to fund the WAVE Program, requested that the CHOICES and VIP be integrated. Initially, the two programs worked side-by-side, but it was evident that grouping both peer education programs made most sense and was most effective. Now, we work under one entity: the WAVE Program.
