Alcohol & Other Drugs
The University of Northern Iowa adheres to the laws of the state of Iowa and strives to create an environment that supports healthy decisions and lifestyles. While the use of illegal drugs is prohibited, the university acknowledges and respects the rights of individuals to use alcohol in a legal and responsible manner, just as it acknowledges and respects the rights of individuals who choose not to use alcohol. Although the moderate consumption of alcohol may be an acceptable part of certain social activities, alcohol and drug abuse interferes with the ability of the university to achieve its mission and can adversely affect individuals, the university and the larger community.
