Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act

Information for Students, Faculty, and Staff of Oregon State University


The Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act, as articulated in the Education Department General Administrative Regulation Part 86 - the Drug-Free Schools and Campuses Regulations, requires all institutions of higher education (IHE) to distribute, on an annual basis, information related to the prevention of unlawful possession, use, or distribution of illicit drugs and alcohol by students, faculty, or staff.

In compliance with this act of congress, Oregon State University will provide for the campus community information covering the following areas of interest.

  1. Health risks associated with alcohol abuse and illicit drug use.

  2. Drug and alcohol programs available to employees or students.

  3. Standards of Conduct for students and employees.

  4. Disciplinary sanctions for students and employees in violation of policy.

  5. Federal and state based legal sanctions.


At Oregon State University, we strive to provide an excellent teaching and learning environment while developing a campus environment that supports healthy choices for living. Included in the choices that confront us all are decisions about the use of alcohol and other substances. If you or someone you know is being effected by alcohol or drug use, please use the recommended resources (links above). If you should have any questions about the purpose of this email or its content, please contact:
