Hi Acadia Students,
The ASU is continually working to advance alcohol and substance use harms reduction within the Acadia University campus community. From promotional activities to the way we structure events, the ASU has been actively working with the Acadia University and the Town of Wolfville to ensure the safety and wellness of students in all aspects of student life.
The new national report Heavy Episodic Drinking Among Post-secondary Students: Influencing Factors and Implications from the Canadian Centre on Substance Use and Addictions (CCSA) that was reviewed by Dr. Darren Kruisselbrink from Acadia’s School of Kinesiology, reaffirms the need for continued action on the topic of alcohol harms reduction on the part of the ASU and other campus partners.
Heavy Episodic Drinking Among Post-secondary Students can be accessed on the website of the Postsecondary Education Partnership – Alcohol Harms (PEP-AH; www.pepah.ca). PEP-AH is a collaboration of post-secondary institutions working to reduce the harms of alcohol on campus, and Acadia University is the founding member.
All the best,
