Drug-Free Campus and Workplace

The college community recognizes that abuse of alcohol and other drugs can create potential health, safety, or security problems. The college is in compliance with the Drug-Free Workplace Act (1988) and the Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act Amendments of 1989; the latter law requires that programs be adopted to prevent the use of illicit drugs and the abuse of alcohol by students and employees. The college: (1) requires standards of conduct that prohibit the unlawful possession, use, manufacture, or distribution of drugs and alcohol by students and employees; (2) provides descriptions of appropriate legal sanctions under local, state, and federal law for the unlawful possession or distribution of illicit drugs or alcohol; (3) offers information and counseling about health risks associated with drug and alcohol abuse; and (4) maintains a system of discipline up to and including expulsion or dismissal for violation of these laws.
