Residence Life at SBU

Alcohol and Drug Education and Prevention
Training Program (ADEPT)

The Residence Life Department works closely with student alcohol educators and resident assistants in planning non-alcoholic social opportunities and programs on campus, including free drug and alcohol-free activities during our annual Drug and Alcohol Awareness Week.

The goals of our peer educator program are:

  1. To develop a comprehensive university prevention program that involves the university family, student constituents, and the community.
  2. To educate students about SBU’s zero tolerance policy on drugs and alcohol.
  3. To create a healthy campus environment by educating students about healthy living and choices.
  4. To promote alcohol and drug free recreational and social activities on campus.
  5. To recruit and train student leaders on campus as peer educators.
  6. To assess student perceptions and evaluate the effectiveness of the program
