Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol or Drugs
The University prohibits the operation of a motor vehicle while intoxicated or impaired. Any person doing so exhibits wanton disregard for the rights and safety of others.
For purposes of this policy, “driving under the influence” is defined as a situation in which the operator of any motorized vehicle is determined by admission, by testing for blood alcohol content or by commonly accepted behavioral observations (e.g., slurred speech, staggering, etc.), to be driving such vehicle after having consumed alcoholic beverages or ingested other drugs or legally controlled substances to a degree that has altered, inhibited or impaired the student’s ability to think and/or act.
Students found responsible for a violation of this policy may face Conduct Process Outcomes up to and including dismissal from the University.
When an incident results in serious injury or harm to another, the University reserves the right to take additional action, including the possibility of dismissal from the University as outlined in Emergency Actions.
