This document describes ways in which higher education institutions have responded to the requirements of the 1989 amendments to the Drug-Free Schools and Campuses Act, Part 86, Regulations, and is intended to help institutions improve current programs and avoid overlooking requirements that might result in noncompliance. Chapter 1 presents the certification requirements that higher education institutions must meet under the regulations and notes the consequences of failure to comply; it also provides information on meeting legal requirements not covered in the Part 86 regulations. Chapter 2 outlines the required content of the written policy (standards of conduct, legal sanctions, health risks, drug and alcohol programs, disciplinary sanctions) and offers several formats that can be used to present the required information. Chapter 3 suggests low-cost methods for distributing policies to students and employees; and chapter 4 discusses the preparation and content of biennial reviews, providing some recent examples. Seven appendixes provide information on the Center for Alcohol and Other Drug Prevention; a compliance checklist; a table listing federal penalties for illegal trafficking and possession of controlled substances; a table listing health risks associated with use of illicit drugs and alcohol; copies of university policy statements on drugs and alcohol; and a table listing effects of drug dependency.
