Health and Safety

Dear Parents and Families,

Slippery Rock University understands that the college experience extends far beyond academics. Students are faced with many challenges during their college experience including exposure to alcohol and drugs. Our dedicated team of educators and college health professionals is always looking for innovative ways to enhance our comprehensive alcohol and drug strategy.

MyStudentBody gives parents information about how they can help their student face challenges related to alcohol and drugs head on. We encourage you to visit MyStudentBody for practical suggestions and strategies to ease the transition to school. Video conversations, interactive tools, and school specific information will help you feel more confident while talking with your student. For details from Slippery Rock University on how to access this information, contact Renee Bateman at 724.738.4206 or via e-mail at
