Drug Prevention Program

The Drug Prevention Program Certification for Institutions of Higher Education requires that Saint Anselm College adopt and implement a drug prevention program for all faculty, students, and staff.

Saint Anselm College's Substance Abuse Policy for Faculty may be found on page 70 of the 2010 revision of the Faculty Handbook. The policy for employees may be found on page 18 of the November 2000 revision of the Staff Handbook. Students may find the drug and alcohol policy, along with standards of conduct and disciplinary sanctions in the Student Handbook. Any violation will be handled through the appropriate disciplinary process outlined in each respective handbook.

The annual distribution of the following enclosed information is also required:

  1. A description of the legal sanctions under local, New Hampshire state, and federal law for the unlawful use, possession, or distribution of illicit drugs and abuse of alcohol.
  2. A summary of the health risks associated with the use of illicit drugs and abuse of alcohol.
  3. An overview of the services offered by Saint Anselm College geared to the identification, prevention, and rehabilitation of drug and alcohol abuse.

This notice and copies of items one through three listed above are available in downloadable format below.
