It is the policy of Lakeland Community College to provide and maintain a drug-and alcohol-free campus in recognition of the adverse effects of alcohol and illicit drugs on employee and student health, safety, and performance. The term "drug" refers generally to any controlled substance of which the sale or possession is prohibited by law.

  4. The Director for Human Resources and Organizational Development will annually distribute to all employees a written statement informing them of the college's drug- and alcohol-free policy and their responsibilities under this policy, and a description of health risks associated with the use of illicit drugs and the abuse of alcohol. The Director for Human Resources and Organizational Development will also provide information relative to local, state and federal laws pertaining to legal sanctions on alcohol or illicit drug use.
  5. The Director of Student Development & Dean of Students will annually inform students that information concerning the college's Drug- and Alcohol-Free Policy is available in the Admissions Office, Health Services, and Student Services.
