Drug-Free Schools and Campuses

All institutions of higher education are required to complete a review of their alcohol and drug program and notify campus stakeholders (faculty, staff, students, etc) of the alcohol and drug policy on a regular basis. The resources below will assist campuses in understanding more about how to implement this review and notification process. The federal guidance recommends a review biennially (every 2 years), but Partners in Prevention recommends an annual review.

Part 86, the Drug-Free Schools and Campuses Regulations, requires that, as a condition of receiving funds or any other form of financial assistance under any federal program, an institution of higher education (IHE) 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.
