University Drug Policy

North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University strives to provide an educational environment that enhances and supports the intellectual process. The academic communities, including students, faculty and staff have the collective responsibility to ensure that this environment is conducive to healthy intellectual growth. The illegal use of harmful and addictive chemical substances poses a threat to the educational environment.

Each member of the University family is reminded that in addition to being subject to University regulations and sanctions regarding illegal drugs, they are also subject to the laws of the State and of the nation. This policy has been developed in accord with The University of North Carolina Policy on Illegal Drugs, adopted by the Board of Governors January 15, 1988. It establishes the framework for programs designed to educate the campus community on the harmful effects of illegal substances and to assist afflicted persons in their efforts to become rehabilitated. It also provides guidance for punishing violators.
