Violating Campus Policy
IV. What can happen if you violate the campus policy?
Noncompliance with this policy may result in penalties up to and including expulsion from the College and termination of employment. The nature and severity of the violation will determine the progression of corrective action. If the situation warrants, expulsion or termination of employment may occur on a first offense. As required by federal law, the College reserves the right to refer students or employees for prosecution depending on the severity of the violation.
In addition to any disciplinary action that may be taken against individuals, any College-sponsored or College-supported groups that condone or encourage violations of this policy may be subject to discipline and possibly to dissolution.
The College also reserves the right to remove any and all persons from College facilities or otherwise separate those persons from the institution whenever there may be a threat to the safety, health, or well-being of the College or a member of the College community, whether alcohol- or drug-related or otherwise.
The Drug-Free Workplace Act of 1988 requires that any employee of the College community who has been convicted of a violation of the statute involving illegal drugs shall notify the director of human resources within five days of the criminal conviction if the conduct giving rise to the conviction occurred on campus or while the member was in activities sponsored by or connected to the College. The College should then make any reports to government agencies that may be required by law.
