University of Michigan-Flint Alcohol and Other Drug (AOD) Policy for Students, Faculty and Staff (2018-2020)

* The current UM-Flint AOD Policy expires August 31, 2020. It was revised effective August 5, 2019 with Proposal 18-1 (legalized possession and use of limited amounts of recreational marijuana by individuals 21 years and older) information.


The Drug Free Workplace Act of 1988 and the Drug Free Schools and Communities Act Amendments of 1991 mandate the university have an Alcohol and Other Drugs (AOD) Policy. Annual distribution of this policy to all employees and students is required.

Alcohol abuse is among the primary national public health issues on college campuses. As such, we must acknowledge that improper and excessive use of alcohol and other drugs may interfere with our mission by negatively impacting the health and safety of students, faculty, and staff. Members of the campus community are responsible for being fully aware of university policy as well as local, state, and federal laws regarding the use of alcohol and other drugs. The misuse and abuse of these substances can cost our community in significant ways including loss of potential, opportunity, health, and in some cases, life.

Working together, we increase the likelihood of better understanding, addressing, and responding to the issues surrounding substance abuse. Such cooperation also allows us to maintain an environment that is respectful, safe, and in keeping with the standards of excellence for which we are known.
