Our Mission 

Prevention and Advocacy at Ursinus College strives to engage all community members in creating a respectful and healthy living-learning environment.  We promote each individual’s development of moral courage, social responsibility, and decision-making to enhance their student experience.  Prevention and Advocacy provides advocacy and educational resources on issues related to alcohol and other drugs, all forms of gender-based violence, and overall student wellness.
