Alcohol and Other Drug Prevention

AOD Vision & Mission

Xavier University will implement a comprehensive alcohol and other drug and violence (AODV) prevention program that directly impacts those within the campus and surrounding communities. The AODV program will be evidenced-based and include prevention, early intervention and treatment services that will adequately decrease the severity and frequency of AODV issues and their interference with student success and well-being.

Xavier University will utilize a coalition of key campus and community stakeholders to identify and manage AODV related environmental risk factors that impede student success, interfere with institutional priorities and increase the university?s liability.
