Drug and Alcohol

It is the University policy that illegal drug and alcohol use, including the manufacture, sale, distribution, dispensation, possession, or use of illegal drugs and/or alcohol is prohibited. Consumption of alcohol may be permitted at certain pre-approved University events subject to the University Alcoholic Beverage Use on Campus policy and compliance with state and local laws.

The illegal use of drugs and alcohol is inconsistent with the behavior expected of members of the University community. The University is committed to the development and maintenance of an environment free of alcohol and drug abuse and in compliance with the Drug Free Workplace Act of 1988 and the Drug Free Schools and Communities Act of 1989. These laws and their accompanying regulations provide a proper framework for the anti-drug and anti-alcohol policies of the University.

Please review the University Drug and Alcohol Abuse Prevention policy which includes a description of drug and alcohol-abuse education programs. Include in the policy are the very serious consequences for illegal drug and alcohol use, including the Penalties under Federal Law and Texas Law. Review the information on the Effects of Drugs Use and the Health Risks of Alcohol and Drugs. An institution of higher learning must comply with the Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act (DFSCA) and Drug and Alcohol Abuse Prevention Regulations. Review the biennial Alcohol and Other Drug (AOD) Report of the substance abuse prevention education efforts of the university.
