Alcohol, Tobacco and Other Drugs
The CSULB Alcohol, Tobacco and Other Drugs (ATOD) Program was established in 2001 due in part to recommendations of the CSU Chancellor's Office. These recommendations state that each campus should design appropriate programs for their institutions and for their student subgroups. Additionally in 1989, the Federal Drug-Free Schools and Campuses Act required all colleges and universities receiving funds to maintain alcohol and other drug prevention programs and to review their effectiveness at least every two years.
To educate students about the potential negative consequences of drug and alcohol use and/or abuse. Through innovative programming, peer education, campus outreach, and community collaborations, the ATOD Program serves to create a harm-free environment in which students can achieve their academic goals and acquire skills necessary for life-long success.
