Indiana University’s Alcohol and Other Drug Program
The Drug-Free School and Communities Act Amendments of 1989 (enacted as Public Law 101-226) requires institutions of higher education to adopt and implement a program designed to prevent the unlawful possession, use or distribution of illicit drugs and alcohol by students and employees or be ineligible to receive federal funds or any other form of federal financial assistance. In compliance with the Drug-Free Workplace Act of 1988 (41 U.S.C. § 8101 et seq.) and the Higher Education Act of 1965 (20 U.S.C. § 1011i), information about these programs must be provided to all IU students and employees.
Indiana University’s Alcohol and Other Drug (AOD) Program includes information about IU policies, state and federal laws, alcohol and drug health effects, and resources available for anyone concerned about alcohol and other drugs. Information similar to what is found on this site is also distributed electronically to all students and employees on an annual basis, consistent with federal law.
