Red Watch Band Program – Toxic Drinking:  Every Second Counts

The Campus Alcohol and Drug Education Center in collaboration with peer trainers implements the nationally recognized, Red Watch Band Program originated by Stony Brook and Northwestern Universities and now utilized by hundreds of universities across the nation.  The Red Watch Band movement is an educational intervention led by peers designed to end alcohol overdose deaths by teaching students how to handle alcohol emergencies and summon professional help.  The mission of the Red Watch Band program is to provide campus community members with the knowledge, awareness, and skills to prevent student toxic drinking deaths and to promote a student culture of kindness, responsibility, compassion, and respect.   Click on the document below for the latest information on FREE Red Watch Band Trainings. CLICK HERE for an informative flier!
