The Drug-Free Schools and Campuses Regulations (EDGAR Part 86) lay out several requirements with which all Institutions of Higher Education who receive federal funds or financial assistance must comply. These include sending an annual notification to students and employees that describes:

  • standards of conduct
  • sanctions for violating federal, state and local law and campus policy
  • health risks associated with alcohol and other drug (AOD) use
  • programs available to students, staff, and faculty
  • disciplinary sanctions for conduct violations

Additionally, a Biennial Review must be prepared in even calendar years, assessing the University’s compliance with these requirements and the effectiveness and enforcement of AOD-related programming.

The University of Arizona (UA) is serious about not only complying with the law in this area but also ensuring our institution does all it can to foster an environment that promotes the health and safety of everyone – students, staff and faculty alike – in our campus community.

In these pages, you will find additional information regarding the UA policies, programs and collaborations that drive this ongoing effort.
