As a learning community, Carroll University strives to provide an educational environment that actively promotes the intellectual, emotional, spiritual, and physical development of all its members.  Such an environment affirms both the rights of the individuals and the needs of the larger community to which they belong.  Therefore, the Carroll University polices regarding the use/misuse of illegal, controlled, or banned substances by students and student groups are derived from the following general premises:
 
  • The university expects persons to take responsibility for their actions and for the environment of which they are a part.
  • The university will discourage the use/misuse of illegal, controlled, or banned substances by any member of its community through educational awareness programs and appropriate regulations.
  • The university will offer assistance to any member having problems related to illegal, controlled, or banned substances through counseling services or other community resources.
  • The university encourages students to seek help who are concerned about their own or another individual's illegal, controlled, or banned substances use/misuse.
  • The university reserves the right to consider evidence of odor in illegal, controlled, and/or banned substance (s) violations.
Carroll University strives for a drug free environment and takes seriously the negative effects illegal, controlled, or banned substances have on its students and community.  The university expects students to comply with federal, state, and/or local laws.
