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), the following information is provided to all university students and employees (including but not limited to faculty, appointed and hourly employees, and student-hourly employees) on all campuses and workplaces controlled by Indiana University. The Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act Amendments of 1989, enacted by Congress as Public Law 101-226, require an institution 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.
The pages on this site encompass the university’s Alcohol and Other Drug (AOD) Program, which provides information on alcohol and other drug issues, including IU policies, state and federal laws, the 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.
