Helping Students Make Responsible Decisions
We know from national data that four of five college students choose to drink. About two in five students drink in a high-risk way, and this heavy episodic drinking is of major concern.
The consequences of high-risk drinking affect students who drink, students who choose not to drink, and the university community at large. On a yearly basis, excessive drinking results in 1,400 deaths, 500,000 injuries, 600,000 assaults and 70,000 incidents of sexual assault among college students. There is a critical need for effective strategies to reduce high-risk drinking on college campuses.
Efforts to combat these problems at CSUB are led by the Alcohol and Drug Education Committee. The goal of the Committee is to enhance students’ overall academic experiences and personal development by promoting responsible decision-making and healthy lifestyle choices, especially regarding alcohol and other drugs.
The Committee is committed to providing educational programs and social events that raise campus awareness about the dangers of alcohol and drug abuse and cultivate a safer and healthier environment for the CSUB community.
