Addressing the harmful use of alcohol and other drugs requires a community commitment to work together.
The following groups aim to reduce harm from substance abuse by sharing resources and providing support to those in recovery.
Ann Arbor Campus Community Coalition (A2C3) is a broad-based coalition of U-M campus and Ann Arbor community members partnering to promote health and wellness by reducing harmful alcohol use in the community.
The Biennial Review Committee meets every two years to review the Alcohol and Other Drug Policy and provides leadership regarding alcohol and other drug risk management at U-M. They analyze program effectiveness, review consistency of enforcement and discuss the implementation of an evidence-based prevention plan. The 2016 Biennial Review Committee had 40 members, including faculty, staff and students. The committee determined that the university is in compliance with federal requirements for policy. They unanimously endorsed including the following: 1) Language to address alcohol storage on campus, 2) Expansion of the Medical Amnesty provision, and 3) Other minor revisions. They also noted that most of the 2014 recommendations have been implemented successfully, including the formation of the Law Enforcement Collaborative, which brings together campus and community officials to share data and evaluate potential legal strategies.
