The Committee is responsible for developing and executing an annual plan to address alcohol and other drug issues in a comprehensive manner, as well as providing on-going progress reports to the Stonehill community regarding the work of the Committee and its impact on student behavior. The Committee also seeks to reduce secondary issues related to alcohol and other drug abuse.

Starting college is one of the most exciting times in a young person’s life, and it is important for students to fully understand the responsibilities that college life brings. Your student will be faced with many situations, including two of the most significant, perennial challenges facing college students — high-risk drinking and sexual assault. Stonehill is committed to addressing these issues using a comprehensive, evidence-based approach, but we cannot do it alone.
