The Office of Community Standards and Wellbeing is committed to creating an environment that empowers students to live healthy, invigorating, lives here at the University of Redlands. While this is not an exhaustive list, the resources we provide are below.
Students who are invested in making a positive impact on the University community meet once a week and plan for ways to help make life at the U of R better for their fellow community members. If you’re interested in being a part of Peer-Ed please contact the group advisor Adam_Ghovayzi@redlands.edu or the student director Emily_Grossknopf@redlands.edu to find out when/where the meetings take place.
The work that Peer-Ed does is entirely up to the students who show up and can be geared towards whatever the participants want to see on the campus. If you are a student who isn’t interested in participating in Peer-Ed, or can’t make the meetings, you can still attend the events or suggest activities on the URConnect portal.
The Office of Community Standards and Wellbeing offers the nationally respected, researched, and peer-reviewed Brief Alcohol Screening and Intervention for College Students (BASICS). If you are curious about how alcohol might affect you, or is affecting you, then volunteer to take the BASICS course. Your participation would be anonymous. This course can be a good way to check on your use if you’re worried about how it has been affecting your behavior. It can also just be a good informational session to take back to your group of friends. Whatever reason you might want to take the course please email Adam_Ghovayzi@redlands.edu with your interest and you will be contacted regarding your availability.
Assess yourself when you've been feeling mentally overwhelmed and do it before it starts affecting your life too drastically. This tool will help give you some guidelines about where you are and what you need to do next. Take a few minutes and try it out! Find out more!
At the University of Redlands we work to ensure that open communication about the challenges students face is something that students feel positive about. Our stance is that sort of communication is even better when it starts at home before the students arrive. Here we have provided a detailed handbook for parents on one of the larger issues that face any college campus in the US, alcohol. Please read it and talk to your student before they arrive.
