Maintaining a healthy environment with the USC Drug-Free Policy

At USC, we are committed to upholding the requirements of the federal Drug-Free Workplace Act of 1988, as well as the Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act and its amendments of 1989 (Public Law 101-226, 20 U.S.C. 1011i). In furtherance of our efforts to maintain a drug-free environment, we invite you to review the support resources for faculty and staff that promote wellness and help avoid the harmful effects that can come from abusing alcohol and/or other drugs.

The abuse of alcohol and/or other drugs by any member of the university has a detrimental effect on our commitment to provide continual excellence in teaching, research, and education. Misuse of drugs by faculty, staff, and students can pose hazards both to the individual involved and to the community.

We all share a responsibility for creating a culture that eliminates the abuse of alcohol and/or other drugs within the university community. If someone you care about is struggling with alcohol and/or drugs, you can make a private report to the Office of Campus Wellness and Crisis Intervention using the Trojans Care 4 Trojans reporting portal.
