Alcohol & Drug Awareness
The University of Pikeville seeks to encourage and sustain an academic environment that respects individual freedoms and promotes the health, safety and welfare of its students, faculty, staff and visitors. These participants are expected to know and follow the applicable laws and all University rules and regulations. Each person is responsible for his/her own behavior.
The University of Pikeville complies with the Drug-Free School Communities Act of 1989. This act requires that the University of Pikeville certify it has adopted and implemented a program to prevent the unlawful possession, use or distribution of illicit drugs and alcohol by students and employees in order to remain eligible for federal financial assistance, as set forth in local, state and federal laws, and the rules and regulations of the University.
The University of Pikeville prohibits the unlawful possession, use or distribution of illicit drugs and alcohol by students and employees in buildings, facilities, grounds or other property owned and/or controlled by the University or as part of University activities. Alcohol is not permitted on campus. Students who are convicted of an offense involving the sale or possession of a controlled substance may become ineligible for federal student aid.
For the University’s complete drug and alcohol policy regarding the Drug-Free School and Communities Act, you may submit a request to the Public Safety Department or the Office of Student Services. Student Services and the Public Safety Department conduct drug and alcohol abuse education programs each semester.
