Drug-Free Workplace

Under the Drug-Free Workplace Act of 1988, the University prohibits the unlawful manufacture, distribution, dispensation, possession, or use of a controlled substance on University property or as part of any University activity. Any University employee paid from federally-funded grants or contracts must notify the University of any criminal drug statute conviction for a violation occurring at the University or while engaged in University activities no later than five days after such conviction. Violation of this policy will result in disciplinary action including, but not limited to, a warning, written reprimand, suspension, dismissal, expulsion, and/or mandatory participation and successful completion of a drug abuse assistance or rehabilitation program approved by an appropriate health or law enforcement agency.
