Let’s Have A Conversation: AOD Program Options

Honest conversations about alcohol and other drugs are essential on a college campus. Unfortunately, the conversations we’ve historically had have been fear based or overly simplistic. Through our program offerings we aim to help students think through their relationship with substances and to help support healthy and life affirming choices. Below is a list of the programs we offer, please fill out the google form to start the conversation.

Adulting For The Recently Liberated (ARL)

  • ARL engages students in a conversation about alcohol and other drugs that acknowledges their status as emerging adults and their ability to make their own choices, including for some, the choice to consume substances. This conversation helps students explore their own personal values, understand lower versus higher risk behaviors, and strategies that they can employ to support healthy and life affirming choices. This program can be completed in one 90 minute session or in two 60 minute sessions.

Tips For Good Sips (TGS) Mixology Class

  • Let’s have a conversation about alcohol while drinking….mocktails that is. During this program we’ll talk about the messages and myths surrounding college drinking, explore the difference between higher risk and lower risk consumption, and learn about ways to make healthier choices around alcohol. All while learning to make delicious mocktails.

Training For Intervention Procedures  (TIPS)

  • TIPS for the University builds on students’ concerns for the safety of their peers. Students learn decision-making skills and increase confidence to intervene in difficult alcohol-related situations. Students that complete the TIPS program will receive nationally recognized certification and can enhance liability protection for student organizations. This is a three hour training session.
