The policies and guidelines set forth in this section are in accordance with the educational mission of Newberry College, the rights and responsibilities of the Newberry College student body, and the standards and practices for treatment and prevention of substance abuse (alcoholic beverages and other drugs).
Regulations pertaining to the possession/consumption of alcoholic beverages in residence halls and other designated campus locations have been designed to create an atmosphere in which student responsibility is encouraged. Abusive and unlawful behavior is discouraged. The college reserves the right to modify this policy and impose additional restrictions as deemed necessary. The use of alcohol by underage consumers, the use of illicit drugs, and the abuse of prescription drugs, is strictly prohibited. The college will take appropriate steps, including disciplinary action, and may file charges with appropriate legal authorities to safeguard the campus against substance abuse.
Newberry College complies with the requirements of the Federal Drug-Free Workplace Act and the Federal Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act Amendments of 1989.
This policy governs the consumption, possession or furnishing of all alcoholic beverages in or at any College owned or controlled facilities, off-campus conduct when the behavior or the presence of the individual, in the College’s sole judgment, impairs, obstructs, or interferes with the mission, processes, or functions of Newberry College. This policy also includes regulations for campus organizations and is in keeping with the laws of the State of South Carolina.
Since September 4, 1986, the laws of the State of South Carolina have restricted the possession and consumption of alcohol to those persons 21 years of age or older. This policy is subject to change in the event of new local, state, or federal laws.
Newberry College will impose disciplinary sanctions on students and employees consistent with all applicable provisions of the respective Student Handbook and Personnel and Faculty Policies manuals, up to and including expulsion or termination of employment, for violations of this policy. The college’s “Drug Free Workplace” policy also provides for imposition of appropriate employee disciplinary sanctions.
