The Mission of the Collegiate Recovery Community

The Collegiate Recovery Community (CRC) at the University of Mississippi provides a nurturing, affirming environment in which students recovering from substance use disorder can pursue academic goals, elicit social support and engage in opportunities in the Lafayette Oxford University (LOU) community.

The CRC community establishes an academic and social support system to address the unique challenges recovering students face in a collegiate environment. Together, recovering students have an increased opportunity to excel academically while maintaining long-term recovery.

The CRC is open to any student interested in:

  • Private spaces on campus to relax, meet, and study while in recovery
  • Free programs and events geared toward students in recovery
  • Scholarship opportunities up to $1250 for students in recovery
  • Opportunities to fellowship and engage with other CRC members

There are other ways to get involved with the CRC if you would like to learn more. CRC activities and events are open to ANY student who is:

  • Interested in learning more about the journey to recovery
  • In recovery and interested in substance use support options
  • Curious about what it means to be in recovery
