Collegiate Recovery Community
The Collegiate Recovery Community offers comprehensive support services for recovering students. Housed within the Department of Health Education and Wellness, the CRC provides the programs and initiatives needed to enhance a student's recovery program. We embrace a wellness approach to recovery, choosing to focus on recovery enhancement as the best way to prevent relapse.
The Collegiate Recovery Community provides nurturing support to students in recovery from addictions and eating disorders. The CRC promotes courage, hope, citizenship, and love of humanity believing that recovery is the way to a better and more fulfilling life academically, professionally, and spiritually.
