The Drug-free Schools and Campuses Act of 1989 requires an institution of higher education to 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. The following describes the Act's provisions.

As a part of its drug prevention program for students and employees, Graceland University annually distributes the following information to students and employees:

  • standards of conduct that clearly prohibit the unlawful possession, use or distribution of illicit drugs and alcohol on its property or as part of any of its activities;
  • a description of applicable local, state or federal legal sanctions pertaining to the unlawful possession, use or distribution of illicit drugs and alcohol;
  • a description of health risks associated with the use of illicit drugs and the abuse of alcohol;
  • a description of available drug and alcohol counseling, treatment, rehabilitation and re-entry programs; and
  • a clear statement of the disciplinary sanctions that the University will impose on students and employees who violate the standards of conduct.

The University will conduct regular reviews of its drug prevention program to determine its effectiveness, implement needed changes and ensure that disciplinary sanctions are consistently enforced.

Graceland University recognizes drug and alsohol dependency as an illness and a major health problem.  Students and employees who need help in dealing with such problems are encouraged to contact the following resources.متجر قوقل بلاي
