the Alcohol and Other Drugs Harm Reduction Initiative (“Audrey”)


Welcome to the hub of AOD at Yale!

Here you’ll find information about alcohol and other drugs, the culture surrounding them, and the institutional policies and programs that Yale has put in place to minimize their harms and encourage a positive culture.  You’ll also find contact information in case you have questions that aren’t answered elsewhere in the site.

If you’re a current student, you may be interested in our free bartender training program, or some useful information on the law, drinking strategies, or alcohol facts.  Incoming freshmen and prospective students may find the sections on Yale’s alcohol culture illuminating.  For parents and alumni, Yale’s online alcohol education program might catch your eye - it’s a few large steps removed from traditional programs.

Whatever your interest, if it’s on this site, you’ll find what you’re looking for in the navigation bar at the top of the page.  And if it’s not, feel free to contact us with further inquiries.

New AODHRI Student Workers

AODHRI (the Alcohol and Other Drugs Harm-Reduction Initiative, aka “Audrey”) is excited to announce that we are hiring a small team of students. Broad student collaboration has always been essential to our work; that will not end. In bringing together a core team, we aim to make students even more central to our efforts to reduce high-risk drinking on campus. The AODHRI workers will be central in carrying out existing programs and developing new ones to further our positive culture change mission: helping to run the bartender and party management training, for example, and finding ways to encourage more low- and no-alcohol social options.
