Clayton State University has charged the Alcohol and other Drug Education and Prevention Team (A.D.E.P.T.) to: 1. compile a comprehensive alcohol and drug policy which includes a residential living component; 2. advise the alcohol and other drug peer education program; and 3. coordinate alcohol and other drug education programs for the Clayton State University campus community.
The Clayton State Alcohol and other Drug Education and Prevention Team is also the recipient of a $5,000 grant to participate in the Governor's Office of Highway Safety Georgia Young Adult Program. The Governor’s Office of Highway Safety addresses young adult driver crashes, injuries and fatalities and partners with colleges and universities throughout the state to implement the Georgia Young Adult Program (GYAP). This program has proven to be successful using strategies such as peer education, providing educational speakers to schools, and encouraging schools to develop creative, innovative techniques to reduce young adult crashes, injuries and fatalities in their communities.

As of October 1st, 2014, Clayton State University will be a tobacco-free campus, in compliance with the Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia’s policy 9.1.7.
Why go tobacco-free?
The purpose of the policy is to create a health-supporting community for everyone, tobacco-users and non-users alike. The new policy also supports the right of all people on university system campuses to breathe smoke-free air. The simple reason for our policy is respect for each other and the environment. We hope that smokers who choose to continue smoking will respect our smoke-free environment out of concern for their fellow campus community members.
