Student Panel Discussion: Collegiate Recovery

Student Panel Discussion
Event Date: April 18, 2018 - 2 p.m.
Location: Room changed to University Hall 3350

College has been characterized as an "abstinence-hostile" environment, and this can present unique challenges to students in recovery from an alcohol or other drug use disorder. Learn how members of  the collegiate recovery communities (CRCs) here at UMass Boston, and at Boston University, have managed some of the challenges that they have faced to find success both on and off campus. Panel members will share their experiences, the challenges and the successes that they have experienced and will answer questions from the audience. 

According to the U.S. Department of Education, there are approximately 180 CRCs at universities across the country, and many more colleges and universities have launched efforts to support students in recovery to achieve academic and personal success. These programs offer a range of programs and services. Recovery@UMB currently hosts three weekly peer-led campus recovery meetings, as well as sponsoring other events like this panel discussion.  Visit our website to learn more, or send an email to

Refreshments will be provided at this event.  This event is open to the UMass Boston community and to the public.  All are welcome.
