Collegiate Recovery

Collegiate Recovery Collaborative

The University of Tennessee Collegiate Recovery Collaborative (CRC), comprised of representatives from each of the five UT campuses, the UT System and the Tennessee Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services, was assembled in 2021 to create sustainable collegiate recovery communities to support our students across the state. The collaborative also strives to increase awareness and reduce stigma related to mental health and substance use disorders by providing educational and training sessions for students, faculty and staff.

The mission of the UT Collegiate Recovery Collaborative is to unite staff and optimize resources from each UT System campus to establish, support and sustain collegiate recovery and mental health programs. This effort includes policy advocacy, identification of funding and education on best practices for substance misuse prevention, intervention and recovery.


The UT Collegiate Recovery Collaborative seeks to create UT campus environments where we prevent harm caused by substance misuse, treatment is supported, those in recovery have access to campus and community resources needed to thrive and our colleagues feel confident and assisted in addressing substance misuse and recovery.
