Recently, many e-mails have been sent out to students, faculty and staff regarding new University policies. This month, two new major policies have hit campus: an updated drug policy and a new security and fire safety report.
- Updated Drug Policy: In accordance with the Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act of 1989, “Working toward a Drug-Free University Community” was recently released to all students, faculty and staff at the University. This 12-page comprehensive report discusses the various drugs and controlled substances that are not allowed on campus, including the new policy on hookah and other drug-related paraphernalia which are now banned from campus. Along with explicit drug information, this report includes a table showing blood alcohol concentration levels and the effects caused by each specific BAC.

- New Security and Fire Safety Report: The 2012 Annual Security & Fire Safety Report
was recently e-mailed to all students, faculty and staff at the University from the Department of Public Safety. This 30-page document is in accordance with the Higher Education Opportunity Act (HEOA), Public Law 110-315 that requires two new safety- related yearly documents for Universities with which Title IX institutions must comply: an annual fire safety report and a fire log. The document offers information about fire protection and equipment/systems for all facilities at the University, fire information and statistics about the number of fire drills on campus and a listing of the crime prevention and safety awareness programs on campus.
