Mission Statement

alcohol and drug education program

The Alcohol and Drug Education Program at Boston College is a comprehensive, community-based effort focused on creating significant shifts in the culture/environment to encourage and support appropriate norms around drinking and challenge attitudes and behaviors related to other drug use. 

The philosophy of the Alcohol and Drug Education Program is to:

  • empower students to make informed choices about alcohol and other drugs;
  • educate students about how to make low-risk choices;
  • emphasize health and safety issues related to alcohol and other drug use;
  • encourage civility and community;
  • and foster changes in the environment at BC that will reduce the illegal and high-risk use of alcohol and its related consequences.
