University Drug Policy

North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University strives to provide an educational environment that enhances and supports the intellectual process. Academic communities, including students, faculty and staff, have the collective responsibility to ensure that this environment is conducive to healthy intellectual growth. 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 and chemicals, they are also subject to state and national laws. 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 established the framework for programs designed to educate the campus community on the harmful effects of illegal substances and assist afflicted persons in their efforts to become rehabilitated. It also provided guidance for punishing violators.
