Collegiate Recovery Support
In 2020, WSU received the State of Washington Collegiate Recovery Support Project contract from the Washington State Health Care Authority. The purpose of this project is to implement Collegiate Recovery Support across Washington in institutions of higher education, including providing seed grants, evaluation of recovery services, and state-wide virtual education sessions.
The goal of Collegiate Recovery Support is to offer the chance for students in recovery from substance use to experience the opportunities higher education offers both in the college environment and after, by providing support, preventing a return to substance use, and promoting successful academic performance.
We’re All in This Together: WSU Greek PhotoVoice Project
With ITGA grant funds, WSU Health Promotion and the Center for Fraternity and Sorority Life (CFSL) are working together with students from the WSU Greek IFC (Interfraternity Council) and fraternity community on the We’re All in This Together: WSU Greek PhotoVoice Project.
This project will focus on understanding the interaction between Greek community social gatherings, drinking alcohol, and the potential transmission of COVID-19. From this analysis, the goal is to develop community-based harm reduction efforts to address both concerns – high risk drinking at house parties and spread of the community spread of COVID-19.
Virtual Recovery Support Meetings Project
WSU Health Promotion and Cougs for Recovery are collaborating to implement Facilitation of a Virtual Recovery Support Meetings project. This project will provide engaging support to members of the WSU community in recovery or who are contemplating entering recovery. These Student Affairs support services work to reduce stigma of drug and alcohol addiction, support academic success, connect interested individuals to resources in the recovery community, and create a fun, safe, and sober environment in which the WSU community can flourish through peer support relations.
