Stony Brook University is committed to providing a safe and caring environment for our students. Through the Center for Prevention and Outreach (CPO) we offer a wide range of services to address student concerns about alcohol and other substances, relationships, gender issues, and making healthy choices.
Our focus is on prevention and early intervention,and we strive to provide students with the knowledgeand resources they need to make healthy decisions and also to provide a network of care for those in need of support.
We have four departments, each emphasizing a critical area of prevention and outreach: Alcohol and Other Drugs, Sexual Assault, Depression/Suicide, and Health Education.
Our diverse group of professional staff,student peer educators, and volunteers provides education, and advocacy services in each of these areas. The Wo/Men's and Gender Resource Center provides counseling related to recent sexual assault and other gender related issues. In addition, we offer training, information sessions, and consultation for faculty and staff who may be concerned about a student or about issues impacting students. Our students' safety and health are our top priorities.
Our office is open Monday - Thursday from 10 am - 6 pm and Friday 10 am - 4 pm.
