Alcohol & Other Drug Education and Prevention
The Health and Wellness Program in Student Support Services has been established to assist in educating the university community about the responsible use of alcohol as well as the misuse/abuse of alcohol and other drugs. Various programs are available for presentation to student clubs and organizations, as well as other university groups.
In addition, Student Support Services collaborates with the Wright State University Counseling and Wellness Services to offer an educational program for students who may be experiencing problems or concerns with alcohol and/or other substances. Students who have a concern about their alcohol or other drug use are welcome to contact the Office of Student Support Services for more information about the substance abuse education program. In addition, referrals from faculty and staff are also accepted. Students may be referred to the program through the disciplinary process.
Sexual Assault Education & Prevention
Wright State University is committed to educating and increasing awareness of students, faculty, and staff about incidence of sexual assault, prevention, and intervention. The university has established the Sexual Assault Education and Prevention program to provide educational programming, crisis intervention, advocacy, and referral services for students who have been victims of sexual assault.
Commuter Student Services
Wright State University implements several programs to serve the needs of the large number of commuter students enrolled at the university. Commuter Appreciation Day is held annually during Welcome Week to raise awareness of the needs of commuter students who comprise the majority of our student population. A commuter lounge is located in the Student Union, outside the Office of Student Support Services, for students to relax and study between classes. Additional programs for commuters include Good Morning Commuters, Good Evening Commuters, and Finals Survival. These programs are held several times each semester and provide an opportunity for commuter students to stay in touch with current campus happenings and get information about various departments and services on campus. A Commuter Student Association is active on campus. Those interested in joining should contact the Office of Student Support Services at (937) 775-3749.

The focus of this program is for the student participants (“mentors”) to promote health education such as wellness, sexual health, and alcohol and other drug awareness to various student groups and gatherings throughout campus. The participants are recruited a number of ways: through the summer orientation program; campus activities; advertisements; and by other program participants. Active members learn valuable skills such as public speaking, listening, and program development. All interested students are welcome to inquire.
