About Us

The Alcohol and Drug Awareness Committee recognizes that the consequences of high risk drinking and substance abuse may impact health, safety, and personal success.

In line with the University of Lethbridge’s strategic priorities, the A&DAC endeavors to promote the health, safety and security of students, faculty, and staff through engaging activities and information surrounding alcohol and drug awareness, harm reduction strategies and available support services within the University, the City of Lethbridge and Southern Alberta.


The A&DAC’s mission is to:

  • Promote and initiate educational programming in relation to high risk drinking, substance abuse, and harm reduction strategies
  • Share information and resources that may positively affect the decisions students, staff and faculty make with regards to drug and alcohol use

Our institution is a member of the Postsecondary Education Partnership — Alcohol Harm (PEP-AH).   This partnership is focused on supporting nation-wide campus efforts to reduce the harms related to alcohol consumption.
