Under federal legislation entitled the Drug Free Workplace Act of 1988 and the Drug Free Schools and Communities Act of 1989, no institution of higher education shall be eligible to receive funds or any other form of financial assistance under any federal program, including participation in any federally funded or guaranteed student loan program, “unless it has adopted and implemented a program to prevent the use of illicit drugs and abuse of alcohol by students and employees. The Act requires the annual distribution of the following information to students and employees:

  • Standards of conduct that clearly prohibit, at a minimum, the unlawful possession, use, or distribution of illicit drugs and alcohol by students and employees;
  • A description of the applicable legal sanctions under local, state, or federal law for the unlawful possession or distribution of illicit drugs and alcohol;
  • A description of the health risks associated with the use of illicit drugs and the abuse of alcohol;
  • A description of any drug or alcohol counseling, treatment, or rehabilitation or reentry programs that are available to employees or students and
  • A clear statement that the institution will impose disciplinary sanctions on students and employees (consistent with local, state, and federal law) and a description of those sanctions, up to and including expulsion or termination of employment and referral for prosecution for violations of the standards of conduct enumerated in the DAAPP.
