GENERAL PROVISIONS

This policy is adopted to ensure compliance with applicable Federal law and therefore addresses only the unlawful possession, use or distribution of alcohol or illegal drugs by students and employees. The University has other policies that address circumstances where the possession, use or distribution of alcohol is not unlawful but is still a violation of student or employee conduct regulations.

The University has both a legal and moral obligation to maintain a drug-free learning environment and a drug-free workplace for the University. Therefore, in accordance with the Drug-Free Workplace Act of 1988 PL 100-690 and the Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act Amendments of 1989 PL 101-226, Faulkner University has adopted an official policy on maintaining a drug-free community and workplace.

The Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act Amendments of 1989 require that, as a condition of receiving funds or any other form of financial assistance under any federal program, an institution of higher education must certify that it has adopted and implemented a program to prevent the unlawful possession, use or distribution of illicit drugs and alcohol by students and employees.

  1. The University shall distribute annually, in writing, to each student (regardless of the length of the student's program of study) and each employee (regardless of classification, status, percent of time, etc.) the following information:
    • The standards of conduct that clearly prohibit the unlawful manufacture, distribution, dispensation, consumption, possession or use of illicit drugs and alcohol by students and employees on the institution's property or as a part of any of its activities;
    • A description of the health risks associated with the use of illicit drugs (controlled substances) and the abuse of alcohol;
    • A description of available drug or alcohol counseling, treatment, or rehabilitation or re-entry programs;
    • A description of applicable legal sanctions under local, state or federal law; and
    • A statement specifying the actions which will be taken against students and employees violating the policy, including termination of employment, expulsion from the University, referral for prosecution, or mandatory participation in a rehabilitation program.
  2. The University shall review the program, biennially at a minimum, to determine its effectiveness, ensure that disciplinary sanctions are enforced, and make changes to the program if warranted.
  3. The University shall review the program, biennially at a minimum, to determine its effectiveness, ensure that disciplinary sanctions are enforced, and make changes to the program if warranted.

Standards of Conduct
