Alcohol, Tobacco and Other Drugs (ATOD)
Recommended by the Chancellor’s Office in 2001, CSU East Bay established the Alcohol, Tobacco, and Other Drugs (ATOD) Advisory Council in order to provide special attention to the development of alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs policies and prevention programs. The ATOD Advisory Council is divided into 5 subcommittees: Policy, Assessment, Education & Prevention, Community/Treatment, and Funding.
