Changing the behaviors of our students requires the entire community’s attention to the culture we establish. Setting the tone and culture for our campus can only be achieved by the active participation of the entire community. In an effort to promote working relationships and communication with the University campus and surrounding community, GMercyU has established the Campus Community Coalition (CCC). The CCC meets three times a year to enhance shared responsibility, prevent and address high-risk drinking problems, and contribute to the health and safety of the University community.

Faculty have the potential to play a major role in changing the culture at GMercyU. Please read the following document for ways you can contribute to this positive change:
