FAU Alcohol Policy

Per the Drug Free Schools and Campuses Regulations, it is required that each faculty, staff, and student at FAU be provided with and given access to the FAU Alcohol Policy. Please take the time to read and familiarize yourself with the policy and additional information associated with alcohol use here at FAU. Alcohol affects individuals in many ways-whether or not they choose to drink. If you are having some challenges with alcohol, the university has resources available for faculty, staff, and students. These resources are listed in the FAU Alcohol Policy and we encourage you to utilize these resources as needed. Please take some time to read the policy here.
