Our mission at the Center for Alcohol and Addiction Studies (CAAS) is to advance collaborative research that will lead to more effective treatment for all individuals with alcohol and drug use, and to create a nationwide program in addiction education and training for all psychologists, social workers, physicians, medical students, and health care professionals. Building a diverse and equitable Center is central to this mission and to our commitment to advance addition research, education, and training.
We continually strive to find ways to advance equity and diversity in a manner that addresses the needs of our staff, postdoctoral fellows, and faculty, as well as the communities with which we work. This page will be continually updated with resources and events at CAAS and at the University at large that support our vision for improving equity and diversity.
