Adams State University's Vice President for Student Affairs, Ken Marquez, was asked to serve on the Colorado Campus Alcohol and Drug Educators (CADE) Steering Committee.

CADE is the only statewide coalition of higher education personnel dedicated to alcohol and other drug prevention in Colorado. It provides education, training, networking, and resources on evidence-based best practices to assist campus professionals to promote safe campus environments that support healthy student lifestyles and reduce the risks associated with the abuse of alcohol and other drugs. CADE provides support to student service, safety-related offices and departments, and key decision-makers responsible for student health and safety. Since 1987, CADE has served as an issues forum, a support system, and a resource and sharing network for professionals in alcohol and drug abuse prevention on college campuses.

Among Marquez's responsibilities is oversight of Adams State's Counseling Center, Police Department, and Residence Life.
