Wildcat Roar - Reach out and Respond! – Toxic Drinking:  Every Second Counts

The Campus Alcohol and Drug Education Center in collaboration with peer trainers implements the nationally recognized, Wildcat ROAR program (Formerly Red Watch Band) originated by Stony Brook and Northwestern Universities and now utilized by hundreds of universities across the nation. The Wildcat ROAR 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 Wildcat ROAR 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.
