Drugs

The decisions you make about drug use not only affect you, but can also affect all those around you.

University of Idaho - Drug Policy

Freedom to inquire and the respect that members of the university community afford each other as col-leagues define the quality of life at the university. Maintaining this freedom and respect demands clarity of thought, a focus on excellence, and a commitment that instruction and research will not be threatened by the presence or use of controlled substances. To recognize this commitment and to enunciate a policy that delineates the process by which this community disciplines itself, the university's policy and program to maintain a drug-free workplace are set forth in the following.

This section describes the university's policy with regard to the use of controlled substances at the university.

B-1. Drug Free Environment. The university strives to maintain an environment conducive to inquiry and learning and free of controlled substances. B-2. Federal and State Statutes. The unlawful manufacture, distribution, dispensing, possession, or use of any controlled substance (as defined in the federal Controlled Substances Act and 21 CFR 1300.11 through 1300.15 and in Title 37, Chapter 27, Idaho Code) is prohibited in or on all property owned or controlled by the university or at any location where the university's work is performed.

B-3. Campus Community. This policy applies equally to administrators, faculty, staff, and students.

B-8. Student Sanctions. Prohibitions regarding use of controlled substances by students are addressed by the Student Code of Conduct [FSH 2300].

C. Additional Information. Information on the health hazards associated with use of controlled substances, as well as assistance in recognizing and dealing with substance abuse problems generally--including abuse of alcohol--is available through services such as the Employee Assistance Program, the Counseling & Test-ing Center, the Student Health Service, the Latah County Office of the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare, and through private physicians.
