MSU Collegiate Recovery Community

Support MSU's Collegiate Recovery Community

Please consider giving to MSU's Collegiate Recovery Community (CRC) as the money is specifically earmarked to help our students in recovery. Your support will ensure that MSU students have a sober place to learn and grow. All gifts to the CRC help fund direct services and programming for MSU students in recovery and those affected by addiction. Funds raised through this campaign will supply food and amenities for the CRC Student Lounge and enable continued wellness workshops and events. Monetary support also helps the CRC expand its presence on campus, and we anticipate that as our program grows and gains visibility, so too will the number of students who seek help and enter recovery.

Give to the CRC and help support the unmet needs of MSU students in recovery, fostering a sense of belonging and peer support.

"Being a part of CRC has truly helped change my life for the better. It takes a lot of hard work, focus, and dedication continuing sobriety on a college campus, and the CRC makes it that much easier to do so. I have been blessed meeting some incredible and inspiring individuals since being a part of the CRC and I am so grateful for the opportunity to grow with these individuals." - CRC Student

Who We Are

The Collegiate Recovery Community (CRC) serves students in or seeking recovery from alcohol and other drug addiction. MSU’s data supports the need for expanding recovery services, with 3.2% of Spartans reporting that they identify as being in recovery - which equates to an estimated 1,534 students who may need recovery supports. The CRC is a campus haven where Spartans in recovery are free to be themselves. Our mission is to provide a safe and supportive campus community in which students in recovery can successfully achieve their academic, personal, and professional goals. Recovery services offered include weekly support meetings, individualized recovery planning, 24-hour access to the collegiate recovery lounge, counseling support, academic resources, organized sober activities, wellness and life skills workshops, scholarships, and Recovery Housing. Recovery Housing is an on-campus option that offers a supportive living environment with a live-in peer support specialist where students can have a real college experience and form meaningful relationships based on sobriety, friendship, and academic success.
