The goal and focus of alcohol and other drug education at Miami University is to prepare students to make legal, low risk choices about drinking during college and in the future. Alcohol education can support a student's academic success and contribute to their engagement in campus activities.
We use a "harm reduction" approach that helps students assess their risk for developing alcoholism; determine what is "low risk" for them as an individual; and identify ways they can practice these legal, low risk guidelines.
The Good Samaritan Policy was introduced during the 2013-2014 academic year out of concern for the health and safety of Miami students. It provides the opportunity for students to seek medical assistance in alcohol or drug related emergencies without concern for arrest and disciplinary action.
The Office of Student Wellness provides educational resources and services that promote the health and wellness of Miami students. Our staff of professionals and peer educators work to raise awareness, coordinate programming initiatives, and influence policy that results in healthy choices.
