Notre Dame Community & Alcohol Use
Notre Dame is a Catholic institution, informed and inspired by our Holy Cross tradition. We respect the dignity of each person, embracing the diversity of identities, backgrounds and perspectives that each of us offer. We aspire to create a community that is characterized by a collective sense of care and concern for one another and the common good. These values are timeless, but they are even more relevant as we begin the 2020-2021 academic year.
To that end, all incoming students are required to complete AlcoholEdu, an evidence-based, interactive online module that will take about one hour to complete. Alcohol and other drug misuse is a challenge on college campuses nationwide, including here at Notre Dame. Using alcohol or drugs this year carries even more risk than usual, because we know that these substances reduce inhibitions and can impact an individual’s ability to maintain health and safety guidelines. The stakes for our collective safety are high, and students are urged to make choices that will keep themselves, their friends, and our campus safe.
AlcoholEdu is a nation-wide, evidence-based online module that will provide you with education on these topics and help you develop critical skills to make more thoughtful and intentional decisions.
