Students for Sensible Drug Policy

Students for Sensible Drug Policy is an international grassroots network of students who are concerned with the impact drug abuse has on our communities and recognize that the War on Drugs is failing our generation and society.

SSDP mobilizes and empowers young people to participate in the political process, pushing for sensible policies to achieve a safer and more just future, while fighting counterproductive Drug War policies, particularly those that directly harm students and youth. Manchester University SSDP was the first chapter in Indiana at the time it was started, and continues to challenge our community to reconsider drug policies on campus, in our state, and nationally. MU SSDP provides a safe place for rational discussion of issues surrounding drug abuse and seeks positive solutions through harm reduction.

We hold weekly meetings, Tuesdays at 7 p.m. in SCIC 102. Our faculty advisor is Professor Tim Brauch and the current president is Carissa Arnett.
