Red Cup Culture

Red Cup Culture-2The Red Cup Culture program is a creative approach to prevention that incorporates a campus-made video followed by a peer facilitated discussion for all first-year students during the first week of the academic semester. 

After participating in The Red Cup Culture program, first-year students will be able to:

  • Identify community expectations to make healthy choices and support others in doing the same.
  • Understand campus policy and state laws related to alcohol use.
  • Identify the effects and consequences of high risk drinking.
  • Know the key campus resources related to situations involving high risk drinking.

The peer educators who facilitate the discussions following the video are members of the Red Cup Culture Team.  Selection of peer educators takes place each semester in the Spring. Training for facilitators occurs annually in August.
