Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act

In compliance with the federal Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act, UC Santa Cruz annually notifies students, faculty, and staff of policies, procedures, and potential consequences related to unlawful possession, use, or distribution of drugs and alcohol on campus. This notice is distributed to students through the colleges and the Graduate Studies Division, and to faculty and staff via email. The university also conducts a biannual review of programs related to drugs and alcohol to determine effectiveness, implement changes, and ensure that disciplinary sanctions are consistently enforced. This review is coordinated by the Dean of Students Office. For information, email deanofstudents@ucsc.edu.
