5-Sure Safe Rides

5-SURE is for all Stanford students, faculty and staff. Drivers are trained to handle a variety of situations from verbal abuse to alcohol poisoning. The service assists thousands of students per quarter by providing transportation to and from a variety of campus locations that range from parties and other campus activities to dormitories and libraries. 5-SURE welcomes any constructive criticism, service oriented workers, and/or opportunities to aid the Stanford community by eliminating serious physical risks.

5-SURE on Foot

Active bystanders provide a documented and proven solution toward shifting the culture around college drinking. With student input and administrative support, our team keeps an eye out for potentially dangerous situations happening outside during party nights.  The student staff alters the trajectory of a potentially intoxicated student’s night, preventing a relatively small problem from becoming a dangerous situation.  Also, if you're feeling unsafe walking back to your dorm on a weekend night, our team will gladly walk you home

The PEERs are paid undergraduate (and co-term) peer educators that Prevent harms, Educate about holistic health and well-being, Empower our community, and Refer students to campus resources. They are trained in the fundamentals of public health as it relates to the following topic areas: substance use, sexual citizenship, and health promotion.

Substance Free and Wellness 

The Well House

We want to create a substance-free undergraduate residential community and experience based on the theme of wellness. This provides an environment for students to learn and practice holistic approaches to physical, mental, and emotional health: The Well House or “The Well.”  The values of the substance-free community are connection, equity, belonging, authenticity, and vulnerability and humility. Students living at The Well need to commit to live substance free and actively promote an environment based upon the respect and care for others in the community.

Cardinal Recovery

As we seek to build our Stanford Collegiate Recovery Community (Cardinal Recovery), this site is designed to support Stanford affiliates in their recovery, with flexible levels of support. While Cardinal Recovery is open to all Stanford affiliates in any form of recovery, this webpage is dedicated to students in recovery from substance and behavioral addictions and diagnoses.
