The Sacramento State ATOD Program continues to build campus and community partnerships to best serve students, faculty and staff. Through partnerships with Athletics, Student Organizations & Leadership, Housing & Residential Life, and academic departments, the ATOD Program successfully conducted the National College Health Assessment (NCHA) in the Spring term of 2013. The results of this survey have provided the university with important data concerning current student health trends and concerns. Additionally, the ATOD Program continues to partner with the Violence & Sexual Assault Support Services Program to administer, evaluate, and assess online mandatory alcohol and sexual assault education tutorials. These online mandatory tutorials reached 6,976 new freshmen and transfer students in the 2012-2013 academic year, providing information which assisted both programs in conducting relevant education, outreach and direct services. And, in December 2013, President Alexander Gonzalez signed a directive for creating a tobacco-free campus.
