Illegal or abusive use of drugs or alcohol by any member of the University community can adversely affect the educational environment and will not be accepted. Abuse of these substances can result in numerous physical and psychological health problems. Its use is a factor in organ damage, increased risk of personal injury, impaired judgment, a factor in sexually transmitted diseases, and more.
