USD RECEIVES REGOGNITION AT THE 2014 RADD SPIRIT AWARDS IN LA

The Entertainment Industry’s Voice for Road Safety, has recognized the University of San Diego for its exemplary contribution to RADD’s mission to raise awareness about the dangers and consequences of driving under the influence at the 2014 RADD Spirit Awards hosted by the Continental Club in Los Angeles on Tuesday, March 11, 2014.

The purpose of the Spirit Awards is to recognize individuals, government leaders, businesses and student organizations that demonstrated outstanding support for RADD’s efforts to educate citizens of the dangers of drunk driving and help bring an end to DUI arrests, deaths and injuries among ages 18-34 throughout the State of California.

USD earned this recognition for demonstrating campus leadership by developing unique, effective ways to bring RADD’s “Plan ahead; use a designated driver or a taxi” message to students and community members alike,” said RADD President, Erin Meluso. Campus Connections, USD’s peer education student organization based out of the Center for Health and Wellness Promotion, lead the efforts by hosting activities such as RADD Car Cash Cab Trivia, the Standard Drink Challenge, and Walk the Line with impairment simulation goggles.

“Working with RADD is a great way to initiate conversations among our peers that might otherwise be kind of hard to start talking about,” said Brittany Carava of Campus Connections. USD was specifically recognized at the Spirit Awards for “#1 Statewide Programming Activation” for developing the Cash Cab game utilizing the RADD car, a model that has now been used at campuses across the state.
 
Notable recipients who received top statewide honors included: Toyota Corporation, San Diego Police Department, Umami Burger, the California Office of Traffic Safety and the California Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control.  Outstanding RADD-partnering campuses, bars, restaurants and entertainment venues throughout California were recognized with awards for their service.

RADD manages the California College DUI Awareness Project, California’s statewide hospitality alliance, and its regional initiative, the RADD-OTS SD Hospitality DUI Task Force with support from OTS, ABC and Toyota Motor Sales, USA.

The RADD Program is produced in partnership with the University of California, Irvine, under the California College DUI Awareness Project. Funding for this program was provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. USD is one of 25 college campuses that support the mission to educate college students about the importance of making a plan and designating a driver if they are planning to drink.

If you are a student interested in supporting RADD’s mission here at USD, attend a Campus Connections meeting on Tuesdays at 1:00pm in UC 161 or contact the Center for Health and Wellness Promotion at (619) 260-4618.  For more information on the California College DUI Awareness Project, a statewide network of 25 partnering campuses; 350 bars and restaurants that donate free rewards to designated drivers, hospitality and corporate benefactors, and supporting federal state and local agencies please visit www.collegeisradd.org.

The final cut is in for you to take a few minutes to learn a little about what some of our colleagues had to share!

Four Sisters Premier and QPR Training

On Monday, April 28, Caley Cook, '02 Communication Studies alumna, will be joining us on campus to premier her documentary short "Four Sisters", a film she produced about those who are left behind when a loved one takes their own life. The film, which takes place in Austin, Texas, will touch on the stories of four women, each living only miles from one another, and who have each lost a sibling to suicide.

We invite you to join us in the Warren Auditorium from 5-8 p.m. for this special event, which will be followed by a panel discussion featuring Caley Cook and Student Wellness clinicians.
