General Policies (Chapter 1)

Substance Use and Abuse (Section 110)

When the conduct of a member of the college community on college property or during a college activity, wherever it may occur, is in violation of this policy, the college will take appropriate action, up to and including expulsion, termination of employment, and referral for prosecution. Please also see Alcohol and Drug Problems in Section 211.

When appropriate, the Office of Human Resources may make referrals to the Employee Assistance Program, or employees may wish to consult the EAP independently. This policy supplements, and does not replace, other regulations, policies, standards, and expectations regarding the conduct of college students and employees. Nothing in this policy shall be construed to remove or otherwise affect those protections normally afforded to all employees and students.

Please also see the Code of Conduct - Drug-Free Workplace for the Policy on Substance Abuse and Substance Use.
