COLLEGIATE RECOVERY COMMUNITY
The initiation of our Collegiate Recovery Community occurred in March of 2013 when three students in recovery met in an effort to build a “place” where recovering students could find support and fellowship. The group named themselves the Traveler’s Club and they have since become a registered student organization. It is around these students that Student Health Services’ Health Promotion department has built our current recovery programming. We provide both a student lounge and staff office space for our community. We have no recovery specific housing but do have substance free housing options on-campus. The CRC is staffed by one full time Health Promotion professional who coordinates programming and advises the student group. The small group consists of about 13 members who regularly participate in recovery programming. We offer weekly peer support meetings, on-campus 12-step meetings, sober social events, teambuilding activities, health promotion workshops, community service projects, and advocacy opportunities. Staff is available for individual consultation and provides students with accountability, information, and referrals. Our Collegiate Recovery Community is open to all students in or seeking recovery from addictive disorders and their allies.
