Drug Free School Act

The Drug Free Schools and Communities Act Amendments of 1989 require that institutions of higher education provide written information regarding applicable federal, state, and local laws regarding alcohol possession and use; campus policies and standards of conduct regarding alcohol and drug use and the related sanctions; a description of health risks associated with the use of alcohol and drugs; and a description of treatment and counseling programs available on campus.

Alcohol, Drugs and You: A Summary of Information and Resources about Drugs and Alcohol is provided to you by Western Michigan University as part of our efforts to assist you and to comply with the requirements of the law. The Division of Student Affairs is committed to providing an environment that will help reduce the incidence of drug problems among students. This effort has taken many forms: education, the provision of counseling and the establishment of community wide expectations and norms.
