The mission of the UMass Dartmouth Collegiate Recovery Community (CRC) is to provide a safe and welcoming community where students in recovery are empowered to advance their academic, personal, and professional potential.

To fulfill this mission, UMass Dartmouth’s CRC works toward the following goals:

  • Connect students in recovery to provide a peer support network for wellness and long-term recovery
  • Support student achievement across academic, professional, and personal domains
  • Educate students, faculty, and staff about students in recovery

Our vision is to create a welcoming atmosphere, free of stigma, where students in recovery can support each other to achieve their goals and thrive at UMass Dartmouth.

Any student who identifies as a person in recovery from substance use disorder is welcome.

We bring students and allies together to participate in fun events, organizational meetings, community service, and the ongoing promotion of recovery.

Email to be added to our private mailing group for updates on meetings, opportunities, and events. In your email, please indicate if you are a student in recovery or an ally.

We do *not* provide direct medical or mental health treatment or counseling.

The CRC was founded in 2018 with the assistance of a seed grant provided by Transforming Youth Recovery. 
We are a member of the Association of Recovery in Higher Education.
