Welcome to the beginning of the Collegiate Recovery Community (CRC) at Iowa State. We started building this initiative in early 2018, and will incrementally continue to grow the opportunities and resources for students over the coming years.  


Collegiate Recovery Student Organization

A new Collegiate Recovery Student Organization has formed to begin Fall 2019 semester.  This is a peer led organization for students seeking recovery or in recovery from addiction.  The organization will focus on peer support and community building. 

More information to come soon on how to join! 


Upcoming Programs – Fall 2019

Our second annual Collegiate Recovery Tailgate at ISU will be held on Sept 21, 2019 at Reiman Gardens.  This is a FREE, substance free tailgating event and open to anyone.  We’re pleased to have Iowa State University President Dr. Wendy Wintersteen and Iowa State Senior Vice President for Student Affairs, Dr. Martino Harmon, join us for a portion of this tailgate!
