Student & Employee Codes of Conduct for Alcohol & Other Drugs
The UAA Student Code of Conduct (the Code) is found in the Fact Finder Student Handbook. Behavior that occurs on property owned or controlled by the university, in university online environments and classes, or at activities sponsored by or authorized by the university, is subject to university student conduct review and disciplinary action by the university. The Code may also apply to behavior that occurs off campus when it may present a potential danger or threat to the health and safety of others or may reasonably lead to a hostile environment on campus. Disciplinary action may be initiated by the University and sanctions imposed against any student or student organization found responsible of committing, attempting to commit, or intentionally assisting in the commission of the following category of conduct prohibited by the Code:
Misuse of Alcohol
- use, possession, or distribution of alcoholic beverages in violation of local, state or federal law, Regents' Policy, University Regulation, or MAU rules and procedures; or
- engaging in any other category of prohibited conduct while under the influence of alcohol may constitute a violation of this category.
Misuse of Drugs or Other Intoxicants
- use, possession, manufacture, distribution, or being under the influence of illegal drugs or other controlled substances in violation of local, state or federal law, Regents' Policy, University Regulation or MAU rules and procedures;
- abuse or misuse of prescription or over-the-counter medications, other chemical substances or other intoxicants;
- use, possession, manufacture, distribution, or being under the influence of designer drugs; or
- engaging in any other category of prohibited conduct while under the influence of legal drugs or other intoxicants may constitute a violation of this category.
The sale, purchase, transfer, use or possession of illegal drugs by employees on University premises or while on University business is prohibited. Further, the use of any legally obtained drug, including alcohol, to the point where such use adversely affects the employee's job performance, is prohibited.
