Loyola updates alcohol and drug policy

Loyola University Chicago on Tuesday released an updated policy relating to the use of alcohol and drugs.
The policy, approved by the University President’s Cabinet on Sept. 16, 2013, outlines the university policies on alcohol and drugs, as well as local, state and federal laws.
Here is a note from the university:
Loyola Community,
As an academic community rooted in the Jesuit tradition, Loyola University Chicago is committed to maintaining an ethical and just environment where learning is the central focus. Accordingly, the University expects all members of the University community (students, faculty, and staff) to make responsible and legal decisions concerning the use of alcohol and other drugs. Since ours is a community of care and concern for one another, all students, staff, and faculty are encouraged to learn about the social, physiological, and psychological consequences of alcohol and other drug use and abuse. Just as we all depend on one another to maintain an environment supportive of learning, so too do we all share in the responsibility to limit the dangerous effects of these substances in our community.
In order to comply with federal, state, and city laws, and to promote the health and well-being of its community, the University has enacted the following policy on alcohol and other drugs. All students, faculty, and staff are expected to comply with this policy. The policy includes references to other University policies concerning alcohol and other drugs and summarizes certain legal penalties under Federal and State law for the illegal possession or distribution of drugs and alcohol. The following information is critical and should be read carefully by all members of the University community.
