MU is an active member of the Network of Colleges and Universities committed to the elimination of Drug and Alcohol Abuse. The standards of the network have also been adopted by the Board of Governors of the State System of Higher Education as policy for all state universities.
We have the responsibility to provide a drug free environment where the use of alcohol and other drugs do not interfere with learning. For this reason, the possession, distribution, and/or use of alcohol and other drugs on the MU campus is prohibited. Persons violating this prohibition will face university disciplinary sanction, and/or arrest by university police. University disciplinary actions will include an educational component to encourage the individual's acceptance of the responsibility for his/her own choices and behavior.
MU will educate and provide information to the campus community for the purpose of preventing the abuse of alcohol and other drugs. The university will also provide counseling and referrals for persons with alcohol or other drug problems.
