The Clayton State University Office of Student Conduct’s Alcohol and other Drugs Education and Prevention Team (ADEPT) has received its official charter as part of The BACCHUS Network.
BACCHUS, which stands for Boosting Alcohol Consciousness Concerning the Health of University Students, is a university and community based network focusing on comprehensive health and safety initiatives. It is the mission of this 501(C)(3) non-profit organization to actively promote student and young adult based, campus and community-wide leadership on healthy and safe lifestyle decisions concerning alcohol abuse, tobacco use, illegal drug use, unhealthy sexual practices and other high-risk behaviors.
The Clayton State BACCHUS Peer Health Educators provided alcohol education programming for the campus community throughout the Spring semester. Some of the programs included the PEERS DUI Simulator held in April to celebrate alcohol awareness month, and a seatbelt check program held in May as part of the Governor’s Office of Highway Safety “Click it or Ticket!” campaign, which ran from May 17 to June 6.
