Drug and Alcohol Prevention Education
Southeastern Oklahoma State University believes that student success and achievement requires vigilance and effort on the part of the University to promote healthy living and learning. We affirm that we have a role in promoting an environment ,conducive to education, that actively discourages drug and alcohol abuse. We commit to prevention, developmental student conduct, and effective intervention for students at risk for these behaviors.
The Drug Free Schools and Campuses Regulations (34 CFR Part 86) of the Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act (DFSCA) require an institution of higher education to certify it has adopted and implemented programs to prevent the abuse of alcohol and use or distribution of illicit drugs both by students and employees, both on campus and as part of any institutional activities.
To explore the relevant institutional standards of conduct and sanctions, state and federal laws, health risks associated with alcohol and drug abuse, and programs in our community and the surrounding community that can assist you please review the links below:
The Southeastern Oklahoma State University Counseling Center provides counseling services to students struggling with alcohol and drug related matters, and is capable of referral services to any faculty, full-time, and part-time staff that are struggling with alcohol and drug related matters.
