Drug and Alcohol Policy

UIS is committed to maintaining a drug- and alcohol-free environment for its
students and employees, in compliance with applicable federal and state laws.
Students or employees who violate federal or state laws concerning drugs or alcohol
are subject to criminal prosecution; those who violate university policies may
also be subject to institutional sanctions.

No one under the age of twenty-one may store, possess, or consume alcoholic beverages on any property under the control of the university, including campus housing. Persons of legal drinking age – age twenty-one years or older – may possess or consume alcoholic beverages only in areas or at functions specifically designated or approved for such use.

The unlawful or unauthorized possession, use, distribution dispensation, sale, or manufacture of controlled substances or alcohol is prohibited on university property or as part of any University activity. Employees and students who violate this policy may be disciplined in accordance with University policies, statues, rules, regulations, employment contracts, and labor agreements, up to and including dismissal and referral for prosecution.

A complete copy of UIS’ drug prevention policy and program may be obtained from either the vice chancellor for Student Affairs or the associate vice president for Human Resources.
