Drug & Alcohol Policy

9032.2 – Drug and Alcohol Policy

It is the Academy’s desire to provide a drug-free, healthful, and safe workplace. Faculty and staff are required to report to work in appropriate mental and physical condition to perform their jobs in a satisfactory manner. The United States Sports Academy is committed to providing an environment free of the abuse of alcohol and illegal use of alcohol and other drugs. The unlawful possession, use, or distribution of illicit drugs and alcohol on the campus is strictly prohibited. Academy authorities will cooperate fully with local state and federal law enforcement agencies. While on the Academy campus and while conducting business-related activities off the campus, no employee may use, possess, distribute, or sell illegal drugs.

The legal use of prescribed drugs is permitted on the job only if it does not impair an employee’s ability to perform the essential functions of the job effectively and in a safe manner. Students, faculty, or staff with questions about this policy or issues related to drug or alcohol use in the workplace should raise their concerns with their supervisor or the Dean of Administration and Finance without fear of reprisal. There are a variety of community organizations available to help individuals who have substance abuse problems.
