Alcohol & Drug Free Policy
Central Maine Community College prohibits the possession or use of illegal drugs or alcohol on the campus, property owned or controlled by Central Maine Community College, or as part of any activity of Central Maine Community College. Legal possession or consumption of alcohol on campus may be granted by obtaining the prior written approval from the College President.
Students, staff, faculty, or visitors are prohibited from attending their work and/or learning environments under the influence of alcohol or illegal drugs. Doing so would not only negatively affect the individual's learning, performance, and safety, but also that of the people around them and the college community as a whole.
Individuals who violate this policy and/or federal or state law risk institutional sanctions, including dismissal from the college, as well as legal action. Individuals using alcohol or other drugs will not be exonerated from the institutional or legal consequences for their actions
For more information, please consult the Maine Community College System Drugs & Alcohol information entitled “What every student and employee of the Maine Community College System should know about the use of alcohol and illegal drugs”.
