University of South Alabama Drug and Prevention Program Statement of Policy

 The University of South Alabama recognizes that substance abuse is a major issue affecting all aspects of our society. Please visit this link in The 2015-2016 Lowdown, to read our entire Alcohol Use Policy.  The University views the abuse of alcohol and other drugs as harmful to the life, safety, and orderly progress of the academic community. Responsible conduct and accountability is expected from each individual on campus. The University will address this ongoing concern through an institution-wide commitment to appropriate education, prevention, and counseling services. The University recognizes, through this policy and the programs developed to prevent illicit use of drugs and abuse of alcohol, its goal and commitments to a drug-free academic and employment environment, in accordance with the Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act Amendment of 1989 and the Drug-Free Workplace Act of 1988, and the American with Disabilities Act of 1990.
