AIMS has set funds aside to help students and student groups sponsor substance-free events at CUMC. The central purpose of these funds is to promote fun, alternative, substance-free activities during high risk times.
Substance Conscious Events
In line with our harm-reduction approach, AIMS has also allocated funds to assist student groups in developing systems to support lower risk drinking at their CUMC alcohol-inclusive events. “Harm reduction” is defined as a set of practical strategies and ideas aimed at reducing negative consequences associated with substance abuse.
CUMC policy requires that non-alcoholic options be made available and that moderation is exercised.
In order to apply you must fill out and submit an AIMS application. A student submitting an application for substance-conscious events must participate in the social host alcohol training (SOHO training) prior to the event.
