S.M.A.R.T — Smart Mavericks Acting Responsibly Together

 

As one of three Community Coalition Programs on College campuses, SMART’s mission is to foster an environment of change that promotes responsible, educated decision-making concerning the overall health and wellness for The University of Texas at Arlington community.

 

Specifically, the coalition looks for ways to strengthen the culture of health and wellness for The University of Texas at Arlington community by increasing and enhancing the knowledge, attitudes, skills, and behaviors regarding alcohol use and drug abuse in order to empower individuals to achieve responsible, healthy lives.  Goals for the program include:

  • Create positive social norms that bridge the gap between perceived beliefs and behaviors and the actual choices being made
  • Heighten the knowledge of alcohol use and drug abuse risks and effects as well as increase awareness of community resources and prevention efforts
  • Advocate for healthy lifestyle choices
  • Nullify the myths regarding alcohol use and drug abuse
  • Grow personal and social responsibility
  • Engage campus and community partners to stay up-to-date on The University of Texas at Arlington’s needs, issues, and concerns.
