We have a variety of programs, services, and informational topics to share with you, so please explore the website for a glimpse of what we offer. But also make plans to visit us at the Center for Student Services, Building 21-E, on the Coral Gables campus, where our resources can be experienced first-hand and can make the most impact.

You've Got CHOICES – Let Us Help You Make The Right Ones!

PIER 21 is a comprehensive Prevention, Intervention, Education, and Referral program focusing on alcohol and other drug use, misuse, and dependency. By working in partnership with all members of the campus community, we strive to:
  • Promote healthy lifestyles, as well as personal and social responsibility, by providing and/or supporting programs, training, service, and alternative activities for students;
  • Educate students about the negative consequences of high-risk use of alcohol and other drugs;
  • Increase awareness and commitment within the University community to create an environment in which a change in attitudes, behaviors, and use of substances is possible and participation in high-risk behaviors is reduced.
