The facilitators, Sr. Susan and J.R. Lombardo, are not representing any office or department at Pace but have stepped-up out of their understanding of the problems drugs and alcohol can cause and a desire to be present and available to students.
The capacity for confidentiality is an absolute requirement for participation. It MUST be a safe space for everyone!
