North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University Drug Education Policy.
Welborne, Sullivan; And Others
This drug education policy statement for North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University establishes two educational objectives: to develop an educational program that increases the university community's knowledge and competency regarding controlled substances and to increase the skills required to take corrective action for potential drug abusers. In order to achieve those goals, the policy states three program components. The first component is educational and includes plans for an annual drug and alcohol education week, a drug awareness fair, media presentations, campus exhibits, 60-second radio spots on university radio, publication of a drug prevention brochure, and continuous monthly outreach programs in each residence hall. The second section describes the rehabilitation component of the program including the University Counseling Center, the Student Health Center, and connections to community health services. The section on the third program component, sanctions, covers the individual's responsibility to know the law regarding drug use, the university's procedural guidelines in the event of a violation and the sanctions for those who violate drug use policy. Listed first are sanctions for trafficking in illegal drugs, and second illegal possession of drugs. A section following discusses suspension pending final disposition procedures. The conclusion reiterates the university's commitment to education as a primary tool for combating drug abuse. (JB)
