Mission Statement

The Alcohol, Tobacco, and Other Drugs (ATOD) Program provides leadership to the university community in reducing alcohol, tobacco, and other drug use and related negative consequences. ATOD administers and supports prevention, education, and intervention services that empower students to make informed choices about alcohol and other drugs; educate students about how to make lower-risk choices; emphasize health and safety issues related to alcohol and other drug use; encourage civility and community; and foster changes in the environment at IUP that will reduce the illegal and high-risk use of alcohol and its related consequences.
