Summer School of Alcohol Studies

An important educational resource for individuals in the alcohol field since 1943, the Summer School of Alcohol Studies is the first to offer a structured curriculum to participants from various backgrounds and disciplines, becoming a life changing experience for many. The exemplary interaction between faculty and students inspired lively discussions, which resulted in founding major organizations related to alcohol education, such as the National Committee for Education on Alcoholism, which became the National Council on Alcoholism, an endeavour by a famous student, Marty Mann. Another student, Brinkley Smithers was also instrumental in helping the Center of School Studies move from Yale University to Rutgers, and also, along with his wife, Adele Smithers, donated funds to expand the building to its current format.
