Prevention and Advocacy

We envision a community of students, faculty and staff who make thoughtful and responsible decisions in regards to their overall wellness leading to low rates of negative consequences from alcohol, drugs, and interpersonal violence.

The Office of Prevention and Advocacy provides health and wellness promotion, alcohol and drug education, and sexual misconduct prevention programs. These outreach efforts empower students to become independent, responsible, and thoughtful leaders. The Office engages with all community members to develop moral courage, social responsibility, and healthy choices to create a respectful and safe living-learning environment.
