Office of Wellness Education

Our Mission

Our mission is to work collaboratively with students to enhance wellness capacity for students' optimal academic success, while minimizing the negative impact of drugs and alcohol.

About Us

The Office of Alcohol and Drug Education (OADE), an office within the Student Wellness Services Department, is continuing its campaign to help equip the CCSU community with resources and information that foster healthy lifestyles. Some of our initiatives include depression screenings, the Great American Smoke Out, stress busters, safe spring break education, and Alcohol Awareness Week programming and events. In addition to these larger scale, annual events, OADE also provides ongoing prevention and education outreach to residence halls, FYE classes and  several upperclassmen classes (Healthy Choices and SAM SPADY programs). These initiatives would not be possible without the ongoing support and commitment from our Natural Helpers. 

Please stop by Willard if you need resources on alcohol, tobacco and other drug topics for yourself, friend/family members or if you have a paper to do. We have current statistics about alcohol, tobacco and other drug reported use and behaviors from CCSU students. We also have brochures and can also refer you to helpful websites.
