2015 Collegiate Recovery Asset Survey Report (Published August, 2015)
The annual Collegiate Recovery Asset Survey, supported by Transforming Youth Recovery, aims to update studies undertaken to identify community assets that can help students in recovery to thrive in the fullness of the college experience. Starting in 2014, the survey was lengthened to ask TYR Grantees about the nature of their collegiate recovery program/effort (CRP/E), the relationship between their CRP/E and local community-based assets, and the practices that are a result of their CRP/E. In 2015, the survey was extended further to ask a series of open-ended questions meant to inform a discussion on indicators that may be predictive of institutional endorsement or acceptance of a CRP/E. The intention is to deepen the understanding of the practices that might contribute to the long-term sustainability of CRP/Es within campus communities. A total of 91 CRP/Es participated in this year’s survey.
