POLICY ON SUBSTANCE ABUSE

NitteDU is committed to creating and maintaining a campus environment that is free of alcohol and ‘substance’ abuse. ‘Substance’ abuse harms students, threatens the safety of the environment, and disrupts the educational process and defeats the purpose for which a student is being educated. While the University takes a serious view of alcohol and ‘substance’ abuse on its campus, it strongly believes that the best way to maintain an appropriate campus environment with respect to drugs and alcohol is through preventive education about the dangers of drug abuse and compassionate attention to the needs of those who may require help with alcohol or other drug-related problems. To that end, the University provides on-campus support programs and services as well as information about related services that are available in the local community.
