AOD Information > Drug Free Schools and Campuses Act
In compliance with the Department of Education's (34 CFR
Part 86) requirements you are hereby notified of the expected
standards of conduct regarding the unlawful use of drugs
or alcohol on college property or in any college sponsored
activity. In addition, this document will describe legal
sanctions (local, state and Federal), health risks, available
assistance and treatment avenues as well as college imposed
Standards of Conduct: The following are deemed to be
misconduct and subject to disciplinary action.
Alcohol Use - The illegal
possession or illegal consumption of alcoholic beverages
on college owned or controlled property or at college
sponsored or supervised events.
Drug Use - Possessing,
distributing, using or selling illegal drugs or any
other controlled substance or agent having the potential
of abuse, except pursuant to a physician's or dentist's
prescription, or possessing paraphernalia for drug
use on college owned or controlled property or at
college sponsored or supervised events
Students are subject to all applicable legal sanctions
under local, state and Federal law regarding unlawful
possession or distribution of illicit drugs and alcohol.
These sanctions may include incarceration and/or fines
for those found guilty under these sanctions.
The health risks of using illegal drugs and the use
of alcohol are difficult to predict due to the unknown
chemicals involved in these substances. These health
risks may be severe and lead to permanent impairment
or even death. Even occasional use or experimentation
can have significant negative consequences. The diminishment
of intellectual ability, personality disintegration
and long-term genetic damage are not uncommon occurrences
among drug and alcohol abusers.
Assistance is available through the Counseling Center
(located on the atrium level of the Student Center),
the Student Health Center (located in the Student Center
and/or at Providence Medical Center), or any of the
area community agencies, or private treatment centers
for students seeking help for problems associated with
illegal drug and alcohol use.
The College will impose disciplinary sanctions on students
for violation of the student conduct code relating to
alcohol or drug use. Consult the current Student Handbook.
It should be emphasized that when a student's violation
of the law also adversely affects the College's pursuit
of its recognized educational objectives, the College
may enforce its own regulations regardless of any civil
proceeding or dispositions. When students violate a
college regulation they are subject to disciplinary
action by the College whether or not their conduct violated
civil law. If a student's behavior simultaneously violated
a college regulation and the civil law, the College
may take disciplinary action independent of that taken
by civil authorities. When students violate laws off
campus, they may incur penalties described by civil
authorities. College discipline will be initiated for
instances of student misconduct off campus which distinctly
and adversely affect the college's pursuit of its recognized
- Disciplinary measures appropriate to the offense up
to and including dismissal from the College may be imposed.
