Alcohol Policy

Drury University is a safe, education-oriented and community-minded campus that maintains an academic and social environment conducive to intellectual and personal development of students and promotes the safety and welfare of all members of the campus community. Drury University prohibits the abuse of alcohol by its students, employees and citizens. Drury University will cooperate with authorities in the enforcement of all applicable laws.

The unlawful possession, use or distribution of alcohol by Drury students, university employees or Drury citizens is prohibited on university-owned or -controlled property, in conjunction with university-sponsored or -supervised activities, or at any activity or event that an observer would associate with Drury students, university employees or Drury citizens.

This policy has been established to protect the integrity of the educational experience, encourage positive behavior and enhance the community commitment of Drury students, university employees or Drury citizens.

In accordance with the Federal Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act Amendments of 1989, Drury University is required to establish a drug and alcohol prevention policy for its students and employees. A biennial review of this program will be done to determine its effectiveness, to implement changes to the policy if they are needed and to ensure that the university’s disciplinary sanctions are consistently enforced.
