  • In honor of National Collegiate Recovery Day on April 15th the UNO Collegiate Recovery Community is putting on a FREE Virtual Recovery Ally Training from 1 pm – 2 pm CST. We’d love to you join us to help learn more about recovery, how to use inclusive language when discussing recovery, and how to speak with peers to encourage or support them on their path to recovery. We’ll have some fun, learn from one another, and grow in our support of those who are in or seeking recovery. CLICK HERE TO REGISTER

NECPA members use strategic and comprehensive environmental approaches to reduce high-risk drinking and the negative effects of excessive alcohol use. The only criterion for membership is the written commitment of the top administrator to support his/her personnel in efforts to reduce high-risk drinking among the institutionʼs students.
