The Office of Community Development and Substance Abuse will be temporarily relocating to W31-310.
Our office suite is being renovated during the fall 2013 term. Our last operational day in the Stratton Student Center (W20-507) is July 18. The office will be closed July 19, 22, and 23. During the closure, phone service will be interrupted. The CDSA will reopen on July 24 in our new location, DuPont Athletic Gymnasium (W31-310). We expect to remain in our temporary space for most of the fall term. W31 is at the intersection of Massachusetts Ave. and Vassar St. Use the entrance on Vasser (door labeled Hobby Shop) and take the elevator to the third floor.
The Office of Community Development and Substance Abuse is part of the Office of Student Outreach and Support (SOS). SOS works to promote community and student engagement, teach life-long skills such as citizenship and responsibility, supports students in transition, responds to student crises, and helps student resolve interpersonal conflicts. SOS also provides education, outreach, and programming to promote and encourage healthy behaviors and enhance the overall student experience at MIT.
At the Office of Community Development and Substance Abuse (CDSA), we believe in creating strong communities and promoting a healthy social life. We use a non-judgmental approach to address alcohol and other drug use, stress, and violence.
All of our initiatives are student-driven and apply evidence-based strategies. We believe success in the classroom stems from a healthy life outside the classroom.
Work smart, play smart.
