In compliance with the federal Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act of 1989 (DFSCA), Craven Community College prohibits the unlawful possession, use, distribution, manufacture, dispensation, or sale of any illicit drug or alcohol while on college property or as part of any college-sponsored activity.
This prohibition is reflected in Board Policy 2.4 - Drug and Alcohol Use and the Drug and Alcohol Use Procedure. Any student or employee found to be in violation of these policies and procedures will be subject to disciplinary action, up to and including suspension/expulsion for students or dismissal for employees. If any student, employee, or visitor engages in any behavior prohibited by these standards of conduct, which is a violation of federal, state, or local law or ordinance, that student, employee, or visitor shall be subject to referral to law enforcement officials for arrest and prosecution.
Consistent with the Family and Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), parents and/or legal guardians of students under the age of 21 will be notified after the first known violation of college policy regarding drugs or after the first known violation involving alcohol that endangered the health or welfare of the student and/or another person.
Craven Community College cares for the wellbeing, health, and safety of our students and employees and is committed to educating students and employees about the dangers of the use and abuse of alcohol and other drugs. In order to meet compliance with DFSCA, Craven Community College has adopted and implemented a Drug and Alcohol Abuse Prevention Program (DAAPP). The information is intended to not only meet federal requirements but also make students and employees aware of the college’s expectations in regards to alcohol and other drugs.
Students, employees, and visitors may request information about the DFSCA or a written copy of the DAAPP by contacting the Executive Director of Human Resources at 252-638-7225.
