In response to concerns raised in the local community about increased college student alcohol use and related consequences in the Narragansett community yet desiring a cooperative relationship of mutual respect and trust between the communities of the Town of Narragansett and the University of Rhode Island, the Narragansett-URI Coalition was formed in 2000.
The Coalition focuses on the following key areas:
Improving the quality of life in all neighborhoods for permanent residents and URI renters
Reducing underage drinking and harmful consequences of substance abuse
Increasing the awareness, community involvement and support of the Coalition's work
