The Substance Abuse Prevention and Education recognizes the adjustments students face when they embark on their academic careers. This sometimes includes moving away from family and long-time friends, to a new living and learning environment.
The manner in which students cope with these changes, and develop throughout their college years impacts the preparedness for their lives after college. Maintaining a healthy balance between social, academic, and work priorities can assist in this process, while use of alcohol and other drugs may compromise this development.
Substance Abuse Prevention and Education exists to help students understand the connection between substance abuse and future success, to identify their individual risk factors for chemical dependency, and examine the choices they have made regarding alcohol and other drug use. Toward this goal, Substance Abuse Prevention and Education provides the following services:
- In cooperation with the Health Promotion Office, a three-credit Peer Health Advocacy course is offered to undergraduates who want to be involved in substance abuse prevention activities on campus.
- AlcoholEdu is an online course designed specifically to help students who have violated alcohol policies make safer, healthier choices. The course provides a strong educational foundation to support campus judicial programs and is an essential component of our comprehensive alcohol prevention initiatives.
