|Our Mission: The Alcohol and Other Drugs (AOD) Committee articulates
the College's position on matters regarding substance use by students.
This multi-disciplinary team assesses the efficacy of current policies and
practices and makes recommendations to the Dean of Students when the
need for change appears warranted. The Committee advises the Office of
Community Standards (Judicial Affairs) and is available for consultation on
individual cases as requested. The Committee collaborates with the Wellness Committee to provide and support wholesome, substance-free activities for students. The Committee is mindful and supportive of the efforts of students in recovery from alcohol and other drugs.

Chris Herren, Fall River, Massachusetts' high school basketball superstar, played for Boston College, for Jerry Tarkanian's Fresno State team, bounced around the NBA (once playing for his beloved Celtics) and around the globe. Chris failed drug tests wherever he played. Ultimately, Chris - the youngest and most talented of three generations of local heroes - has found redemption and personal fulfillment through the game, but only after it led him down a path of alcohol and drug addiction that nearly killed him.
