To the UCLA Campus Community:
UCLA strives to foster the highest standards of personal and institutional integrity throughout the campus community. To that end, I urge each of you to help ensure that our campus is free of substance abuse and dependence.
The harmful effects of substance abuse, which include health problems, difficulties in personal and work relationships, decreased productivity and workplace accidents, have the potential to diminish the quality of our campus life. This is an issue we all must take very seriously.
Alcohol and drug dependence are treatable, and UCLA offers confidential programs and services for those who may be dealing with substance-abuse problems. I encourage all members of the campus community who feel they may have a problem, or who are interested in learning more about preventing such a problem, to seek help.
To help achieve a campus free of substance abuse, the University of California has adopted policies prohibiting the unlawful manufacture, sale, distribution, possession or use of controlled substances on university property or at official functions, on or off campus. The policies also apply to the unlawful manufacture, sale, distribution, possession or use of alcohol by or to minors on university property or at official functions, on or off campus.
Copies of the printed brochure are available in Campus Human Resources. The policies can be viewed online via the University of California Policy on Substance Abuse Memorandum (PDF).
Employees found to be in violation of these policies, including student employees if the circumstances warrant, may be subject to corrective action, up to and including dismissal, under applicable university policies and labor contracts, or may be required, at the discretion of the university, to participate satisfactorily in an employee support program.
According to state and federal law, a copy of this official notice or the Substance Abuse in the Workplace brochure must be made available to every UCLA academic and staff employee. Failure by the university to provide this notice may result in the loss of eligibility for federal funds, including contract and grant funding or financial aid. Department administrators should ensure that current employees who do not have regular access to a computer, and those newly hired, receive a printed copy of the brochure. Copies of the printed brochure are available in Campus Human Resources. You may also download and print the brochure as a PDF.
