OPEN, the Office of Prevention and Education at Northeastern, provides education, consultation and programming on topics related to alcohol and other drugs and sexual violence prevention. OPEN provides supportive, non-judgmental ‘check in’ services for Northeastern students related to drinking and drug use. OPEN works in conjunction with the Violence Support, Intervention and Outreach Network (ViSION) to coordinate sexual violence prevention and programming efforts. OPEN is a resource to all students looking for information about wellness.
