The Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act Amendment of 1989, enacted by Congress as Public Law 101-226, requires an institution of higher education to adopt and implement a program designed to prevent the unlawful possession, use, or distribution of illicit drugs and alcohol by students and employees. In some cases, conviction of drug-related offenses could result in the student’s ineligibility for federal funds or other forms of assistance.
The possession, use, or distribution of alcohol and illicit drugs by members of the Standard College of Nursing community on the campus facility during class, study, or work periods is incompatible with the goals of the College. No employee or student should report to work or class while under the influence of alcohol or illegal drugs. Violators of these rules are subject to evaluation/treatment for a substance use disorder, or to disciplinary action as set forth in the Student Handbook, up to and including termination or expulsion. Standard College drug policies exist to ensure the College fulfills its mission while fostering a safe, secure and healthy environment.
