 Alcohol and Drug Policies 



In accordance with the Drug Free Schools and Communities Act of 1989 with amendments, and the Drug Free Workplace Act of 1988, Slippery Rock University has published a policy regarding alcohol and drugs. A summary of this policy follows (the complete policy is made available to all students and staff). Copies are also available in the Office of the Vice President for Student Life, the University Police Office, and other university administrative offices.

It is prohibited to manufacture, distribute, sell, dispense, posses, or use any controlled substance in the workplace on campus, or in any facility owned, leased, or otherwise controlled by Slippery Rock University. This includes, but is not limited to, university-related events, programs, or activities which occur on or off campus, under authority of Board of Governors.

It is expected that Slippery Rock University students and staff who use or posses alcoholic beverages will do so legally. Alcoholic beverages are prohibited in the workplace except at social events when approved by the Alcohol Request Committee. Violators of federal and state laws and/or regulations related to possession, use and sale of illegal drugs and alcoholic beverages are subject to criminal prosecution and disciplinary action.

The University Counseling Center provides confidential service to any Slippery Rock University student or staff who believes he/she is dependent on a controlled substance or alcohol. Alternative counseling is also available to those seeking help, and is made known to students and staff through various advertising such as brochures and media advertising.

The complete policy is currently being updated.
