Students, faculty and staff are invited to upcoming training sessions for the LIVE Real Mentor Program, sponsored by the NDSU President's Council on Alcohol and Other Drugs, on Wednesday, Feb. 23, and Thursday, March 31, both at 4 p.m. in the Memorial Union Arikara room and Wednesday, April 27, at noon in the Family Life Center room 122.
The one-hour training sessions aim to increase the knowledge of the NDSU community about the effects of high-risk alcohol and drug use and how to take further steps to promote an environment of safe and responsible attitudes toward alcohol.
Individuals who complete the training will have the opportunity to identify themselves as a resource for individuals seeking information and guidance on issues related to alcohol and other drug use. "The LIVE Real Mentor Program provides individuals with baseline information that they can use to impact people’s lives,” said Gene Taylor, chair of the President’s Council on Alcohol and Other Drugs. “We believe this program will help us begin to change the campus culture to one that supports low-risk decisions related to alcohol and other drugs."
To schedule an individual training session for a department or student organization, contact Erika Beseler Thompson at 1-5478 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The President’s Council on Alcohol and Other Drugs was appointed in 2007 and includes faculty, staff and students who work to reduce high-risk alcohol and other drug use within NDSU.
