In conformance with existing law, University faculty, staff, and students are not permitted to manufacture, distribute, possess, use, dispense, or be under the influence of illegal drugs and/or alcohol as prohibited by state and federal law, at University-sponsored or approved events or on University property or in buildings used by the University for education, research, or recreational programs.
Consistent with its mission, the University will cooperate with law enforcement agencies responsible for enforcing laws related to use of illegal drugs and alcohol.
Students found in violation of this part shall be subject to provisions of the Student Conduct Code. Faculty and staff found in violation of this part are subject to disciplinary action as provided in collective bargaining agreements, University policy, and other applicable state laws and rules.
The University recognizes that substance abuse is a complex problem that is not easily resolved solely by personal effort and may require professional assistance and/or treatment. Students, faculty, and staff members with substance abuse problems are encouraged to take advantage of available diagnostic, referral, counseling, and
prevention services. The University will not excuse misconduct by employees and students whose judgment is impaired due to substance abuse.
The purchase, possession, or consumption of alcoholic beverages is regulated by state law. Students are expected to know and abide by state law and by University rules and regulations governing the use and consumption of alcoholic beverages on campus. Students are referred to Board of Regent policy, executive policies, and campus guidelines regulating the use and consumption of alcoholic beverages on campus.
Students are not permitted to be under the influence of, possess, manufacture, distribute, or sell illicit drugs, as prohibited by state law, at University sponsored or approved events, on University property,
or in buildings used by the University for its educational or recreational programs. Reasonable suspicion of possession or use of illegal drugs and substances on campus may subject the students involved to investigation.
Sanctions that may be imposed on violators of the alcohol and drug related sections of the Student Conduct Code include disciplinary warning, probation, suspension, expulsion, or rescission of grades or degree. Copies of the full text of the Student Conduct Code are available in the Office of the Vice Chancellor of Student Affairs; the Hawai‘i Penal Code is available in the Library.
Campus-sponsored activities on campus that involve either the serving or selling of alcoholic beverages must be approved by the Chancellor and be in compliance with applicable College/University policies and state law.
