Alcohol Use: Your Rights, Responsibilities, and Support Services

Consistent with state and federal laws, HFC will maintain a workplace and an educational environment free from the unlawful manufacturing, distribution, dispensation, possession, or use of a controlled substance (as defined under the Controlled Substances Act, 21 U.S.C. 812 and the Drug Free Schools and Communities Act, as may be amended from time to time). The unlawful manufacture, distribution, dispensation, possession or use of alcohol and other drugs, including narcotics by employees and students, is prohibited on any property under the control of and governed by the Board of Trustees of HFC or on any site where work or student activity is performed by individuals on behalf of the College.

Any violation of these policies or of local, state or federal laws regarding illicit drugs or alcohol will result in appropriate disciplinary action. In addition to college disciplinary sanctions, students, faculty and staff involved with illegal use, possession, or distribution of controlled substances may face criminal penalties, and the college will cooperate fully with law enforcement agencies as appropriate.
