The School of Visual Arts expects all members of the College community to assist in maintaining a drug-free environment. The possession, unlawful manufacture, distribution, dispensing or use of a controlled substance (illicit drugs, alcohol, etc.) or being under its influence on College premises (including residence halls) is prohibited and grounds for administrative action. Any employee or student found to be in violation of this policy will be subject to sanctions, including, but not limited to, mandatory referral for counseling and/or treatment, and termination of employment or enrollment. Any SVA employee, as a condition of employment, is expected to abide by the drug-free workplace policy. In addition, the College is required by The Drug-Free Workplace Act of 1988 to notify all employees and students that they must report any criminal drug statute conviction for a violation occurring in the workplace no later than five days after such conviction. The College is well aware that substance abuse is one of the most pervasive medical and social problems of our time and will make every effort to treat a student or employee’s problem with confidentiality and compassion. However, the mission of the College requires a drug-free environment and all appropriate measures will be taken to ensure that it remains so.
