Drug and Alcohol Policy

CSB and SJU promote the need for responsible behavior in all personal relationships and serious academic endeavors. With this understanding, CSB and SJU expects that all students and employees of the college will conduct themselves in a responsible manner that shows respect for others and the local community. CSB and SJU believe that an environment to enable both students and employees to pursue their goals should be fostered, and that this environment should be free from the effects of drug abuse.

CSB and SJU comply with federal, state and local laws, which regulate the possession, use and sale of alcoholic beverages and controlled substances. Whether on campus or at college- sponsored activities, policies prohibit the following:

1. Distribution, possession or use of any illegal drug or controlled substance;

2. Providing alcoholic beverages to individuals under 21 years of age or possession of alcoholic beverages by individuals under 21 years of age;

3. Illegal possession of an open container of an alcoholic
    beverage, public intoxication, driving while intoxicated and
    drinking alcoholic beverages in an unlicensed public place.

Hosts of campus events where alcoholic beverages are to be served must obtain a permit from the appropriate food service director or activities director and accept responsibility for assuring that all guests act responsibly.

CSB and SJU campus-wide programs such as BACCHUS, employee development, DWI Task Force, student government, counseling offices, career services and other individual residence hall coordinated programs promote education about chemical health and substance abuse.   Programs that address alcohol- or drug-related issues, and emphasize the clear, statistical relationship between alcohol or drug abuse and many disorderly, unsafe or criminal activities, begin as a part of the first-year orientation. The CSB/SJU counseling offices and the SJU Health Center provide assessment, assistance and intervention resources as necessary.
