Recognizing that our bodies are the temples of the Holy Spirit, BU requires that its campus, faculty, staff, and students be drug-free. The school, including all departments and affiliated institutions within it, expressly prohibits the unlawful manufacture, distribution, dispensation, possession, or use of a controlled substance on the campus and premises. Violation of this policy will result in the immediate dismissal from the school of any student or employee involved in any of these activities. Employees must, as a condition of employment, abide by the above-stated policy and report any conviction under a criminal drug statute within five days of its occurrence. This report must be submitted to the Personnel Office.
Any student or employee using alcohol or the unlawful possession, use, or distribution of illicit drugs while on the properties owned or used by BU will be immediately dismissed. In addition, students or employees involved in such illegal activities are subject to legal prosecution under federal, state, and local law and may be liable for personal injuries or property damage that occur when participating in the above activities.
The school does not sponsor drug or alcohol counseling, treatment, or rehabilitation programs. Students and employees, however, should know that the Southern California area is blessed with many fine drug and alcohol counseling treatments and rehabilitation programs.
This policy is the acknowledgment of BU's compliance with Government Code Section 8355 and the Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act of 1989 (Public Law 101-226.)
