Grand Valley State University strives to provide a healthy University community free of the abuse of alcohol or other drugs and illegal or unauthorized use of alcohol and controlled substances. This commitment to students, faculty, and staff is evidenced by the:
The unlawful manufacture, possession, use, distribution or
dispensation of illicit or prescription drugs and the unlawful
possession, use, or distribution of alcohol by faculty, staff, and
students on University-controlled property or as part of University
activities is prohibited. This prohibition includes Marijuana as
federal law bans it from University owned and controlled property and
workplaces. All University employees will, as a condition of
employment, abide by the terms of this policy. Faculty, staff, and
students are responsible for making decisions within the context of
University policies and federal, state, and local laws related to
alcohol and other drugs.
The Alcohol and Other Drugs Policy Handbook (www.gvsu.edu/aces) includes information about University drug and alcohol abuse prevention programs; health risks; counseling, treatment and rehabilitation resources; legal sanctions and summary of laws; University employee and student sanctions for violations of alcohol and other drug policies; employee notification obligations; requirements for Federal grant recipients; and links to additional University policies, procedures, and resources.
This policy and the Alcohol and Other Drugs Policy Handbook will be electronically distributed annually to all faculty, staff, and students. The coordinator of the ACES (Alcohol & Other Drugs Campus Education and Services) Office will conduct the required review, no less than biennially, in even-numbered years.
