UCSB After Dark Late Nite Social Programming is a university-wide effort that focuses
on changing the campus social culture through creating and supporting non-alcoholic
or non-alcoholic centered activities and venues. UCSB After Dark, in collaboration
with student organizations, Associated Students, campus departments and local businesses,
develops regular alcohol-free options and provides new entertainment and recreational
opportunities as an alternative to partying in the Isla Vista community.
The mission of the UCSB After Dark Late Nite Social Programming Fund$ is to allocate
funds for student-initiated, alcohol-free social events and activities which will
serve as alternatives to the Isla Vista party scene and promote safe and responsible
social interaction and behavior on and around the UCSB campus.

- Engage UCSB students in activities that serve as models for how to have fun without excessive and high-risk drinking
- Acknowledge students’ abilities to organize themselves around, respond to,and challenge the highly charged issues of partying and drinking
- Unite student groups that might not typically work together, thereby promoting collaboration, creating community, and building coalitions
- Expose UCSB students to a wide variety of cultures other than their own
- Increase health and safety for all Isla Vista residents
- Decrease crime, irresponsible conduct and unsafe behavior
