New drug view

The University is re-interpreting its policy regarding illegal drug use on campus and will notify parents after first-time drug use, which is one part of an initiative to hold students accountable for their actions and lower AU's alcohol and drug use among students. In the past, most parents have not been notified until the second alcohol or drug violation, which may correspond with major judicial action resulting in removal from residence halls, suspension or expulsion. Under the new interpretation, which is currently in effect, all illegal drug use will be judged as egregious after the first violation and parents will be notified, Dean of Students Faith Leonard said. The change reflects that drug use carries more serious judicial action than alcohol violations, as it is always considered an illegal substance, while alcohol use is illegal for those under 21.
