Alcohol and Other Drug Use Announcement


To all students, faculty, and staff of the University of Arkansas.

The Drug-Free Schools and Campuses Regulations require that our University must certify that it has adopted and implemented a program to prevent the unlawful possession, use, or distribution of illicit drugs and alcohol by students and employees.  To comply with these certification requirements the University of Arkansas Substance Abuse Prevention Program has compiled the following set of policies and other information for distribution to and review by all members of our campus community.

The University of Arkansas policy includes:

  • A list of applicable legal sanctions under federal, state, or local laws for the unlawful possession or distribution of illicit drugs and alcohol.
  • A description of the health risks associated with the abuse of alcohol or use of illicit drugs.
  • A list of drug and alcohol programs that are available to employees or students.
  • A clear statement that the U of A will impose disciplinary sanctions for student and employee violations of the standards of conduct and a description of those sanctions.

It is further required that all students, faculty, and staff of the University be informed of this policy annually.
