Who We Are
The Collegiate Recovery Community (CRC) at UTSA consists of students who understand the need for accountability and support while pursuing their degree at UTSA. Students receive support through campus meetings, planned events and community outreach and service projects. Members are asked to meet participation guidelines and benefit from a campus community, scholarships, sober socials, trips and personal development.
