Coalition of Colorado Campus Alcohol and Drug Educators

Our History

For over 20 years, the Coalition of Colorado Campus Alcohol and Drug Educators (CADE) has supported college and university prevention efforts across the state. In 2015, NASPA was awarded grant funding through the Colorado Office of Behavioral Health to address collegiate alcohol and other drug abuse prevention. Over the next five years, the CADE will support collegiate prevention efforts by helping facilitate data collection surrounding alcohol and other drug use behaviors, creating online professional development opportunities for prevention teams, and providing technical assistance for all campus professionals as we work towards making our campuses a safer space for students to live, work, learn, and grow.

CADE Collaborate

The CADE facilitates trainings and technical assistance to support prevention professionals on campus to change attitudes and behaviors surrounding high-risk alcohol use. CADE Collaborate also utilizes an online system designed to help college and university prevention teams share resources, implement best practices, and learn from each other.  Any member of a Colorado higher education organization can access professional development, resources, and strategies for collaborative problem solving through CADE Collaborate. Enrollment in CADE Collaborate is complimentary for Colorado colleges and universities.
