Allan Hancock College is committed to providing its employees and students with a drug-free workplace and campus environment. The Allan Hancock College Substance Abuse Program emphasizes prevention and intervention through education. The dissemination of current and accurate information enables students, officers, and employees to be better informed. Educational programs shall provide relevant courses, seminars, and lecturers, and student services shall focus on providing guidance and referral for those affected by alcohol or substance abuse. Coordination shall be effected with educational agencies and with appropriate community organizations.

The unlawful manufacture, distribution, dispensing, possession, or use of alcohol or any controlled substance is prohibited on Allan Hancock College property; during any college-sponsored field trip, activity or workshop; athletic contest, home or away, and in any facility or vehicle operated by the college. Violation of this prohibition will result in appropriate action up to and including termination of employment, expulsion, and referral for prosecution, or, as permitted by law, may require satisfactory participation in an alcohol or drug abuse assistance or rehabilitation program.
