This policy applies to all students and to all employees regardless of classification or position. Maintaining a safe and healthy working and learning environment is a vital concern to Iliff and it is committed to taking action necessary to create such an environment. In recognition of this commitment, and through federal, state, and local mandates, the manufacture, distribution, sale, purchase, possession, or use of a controlled substance, whether alcohol, illegal drugs, or legal drugs used illegally, is prohibited on Iliff premises or property. Being under the influence of controlled substances while on Iliff premises is also prohibited.
Only prescription medications provided and supervised by a physician, and over-the-counter medications used as instructed by the manufacturer may be used on School premises.
Violation of this policy includes, but is not limited to:
Possession, use, manufacture, or distribution of any Federally Illegal Drug, or any possession or use of any prescription drug or other controlled substance except under the direction of a licensed physician. The manufacture or distribution of any drug is also prohibited, including Cannabis plants. Marijuana, including Medical Marijuana, is prohibited on campus, regardless of age.
Being under the influence of any Federally Illegal Drug, prescription drug, or other controlled substance to the point of endangering one's own health or safety.
Any possession or use on Iliff’s premises of paraphernalia used to facilitate the use of any Federally Illegal Drug or other controlled substance in violation of this policy. This includes but is not limited to marijuana pipes, bongs and scales or other measuring devices. Any act which causes a person to ingest any Federally Illegal Drug, prescription drug, or other controlled substance without their effective consent.
Like the University of Denver, Iliff is a smoke-free campus.
(Policy adapted from the University of Denver’s Drug Misuse Policy, 2015)
Because Iliff recognizes that its programs have a clear and definite development impact on its students, faculty and staff, all violations of the policy governing Alcohol, Drugs and Controlled Substances will be dealt with on an individual, in-house basis. Offenders will meet with the Academic Vice-President/Dean or the Dean’s designee. Consequent actions may include oral or written warnings and appropriate drug/alcohol education and treatment programs. Repeated violations can result in probation, suspension or dismissal.
In addition, the following minimal actions will be taken by Iliff if a student is convicted of a drug-related offense occurring on Iliff premises or property under local, state or federal statutes: a) The first conviction will result in the required completion of a drug abuse assistance or rehabilitation program approved by Iliff as a condition of continued enrollment; b) The second conviction will result in the immediate dismissal of a student. As a condition of continuation of enrollment, the student must report all convictions of drug offenses occurring on Iliff premises within five days of such conviction.
