Substance Abuse and Title IX Prevention and Awareness Programming

The Office of Counseling and Student Accessibility Resources not only provides treatment for drug and alcohol abuse, but we know the importance of promoting awareness. We provide a variety of educational programming regarding drug and alcohol prevention and awareness, such as Collegiate Drug and Alcohol Awareness and Prevention Event in the fall and the Spring Break Safety Conference in the spring.

The Office of Counseling and Student Accessibility Resources also knows the importance of awareness regarding topics related to Title IX issues, such as dating violence, domestic violence, and sexual assault.
