Supporting students in recovery from substance use is a critical social justice issue, and the college environment can be an abstinence- or recovery-hostile environment for students. This reality highlights concerns of educational access, sense of belonging, academic success, degree completion, and personal development (i.e., residential, co-curricular) for students in recovery.

This session will review information about ISU's new Collegiate Recovery Community and how faculty can foster an inclusive learning environment that supports students who are often overlooked. We will share information about students in recovery (both at ISU and nationally) and provide some best practices about how faculty and staff can connect students to resources and create an affirming space for optimal learning.
