About us: AODHRI

The Alcohol and Other Drugs Harm Reduction Initiative is a branch of the Yale College Dean’s Office dedicated to reducing the various harms - physical, psychological, academic, and social - of drug and alcohol use among Yale undergraduates. We work with students, administrators, health services, police and security, and faculty to make sure students have the information and skill set they need to make smart choices regarding alcohol and drugs, and to create an environment that is conducive to those choices.  This work takes many forms.  A few of them include education programs, collaboration with other institutions, policy evaluation, social activity organizing, and data collection and analysis.

AODHRI is funded out of the President’s Office and has been in existence roughly since August 2011 and under its current name since January 2013. You can contact AODHRI anytime at aodhri@yale.edu.
