CROSSROADS Mission Statement CROSSROADS, Substance Abuse Prevention and Education Programs, is dedicated to the advancement of thoughtful and healthy decision-making regarding the use of alcohol, tobacco and other drugs. We believe that an engaged learner has the ability to make thoughtful decisions through access to the most current information available & a critical examination of beliefs and cultural expectations about substances in our lives. CROSSROADS encourages legal accountability and personal responsibility in all choices involving alcohol, tobacco and other drugs. We believe that the availability and utilization of early intervention services is essential to support students, as well as services for recovering and impacted students. CROSSROADS aims to encourage, support, and be integral in the creation of an environment that encourages healthy behaviors through positive social norms, academic engagement & responsibility, a vibrant co-curricular life, and consistent enforcement of campus and community policies. CROSSROADS recognizes that engagement with the Wilmington community on all of these levels is essential in achieving our goals as a campus and fulfilling our mission as a university. CROSSROADS PROGRAMMING DIRECTIONS CROSSROADS programming will fall under one or more of the following program directions: • Early identification and intervention for individual students • Impacting individuals for behavior change • Campus-wide collaboration on creating a healthy environment • Connection to community to create healthy environments for current and upcoming students.
