Policies Regarding Alcohol and Illegal Drugs

The Student Handbook and the Personnel Handbook contain policies governing the possession and use of alcohol as well as the policy governing illegal drugs. Briefly stated, the College respects the laws of Iowa which have established the legal drinking age at 21. Illegal drugs are not permitted on College property. Hawkeye Public Safety officers enforce College policies prohibiting the underage drinking and drug laws. The College cooperates with all law enforcement agencies in the enforcement of laws pertaining to the use, sale and possession of alcohol and illegal drugs.

Students should refer to the Hawkeye Community College Student Handbook for a more detailed description of the alcohol, illegal drug, and other College policies.

Employees should refer to the Personnel Handbook for a more detailed description of alcohol, illegal drug, and other College policies affecting employees. The College provides information and referrals to students and employees regarding drug and alcohol abuse education and treatment programs such as Pathways Behavioral Services, Peoples Community Health Clinic, and Black Hawk-Grundy Mental Health Center, Inc. The College community can access information about drug and alcohol-abuse education programs by reviewing the report that complies with the Drug Free Schools and Communities Act.
