A Web site launched this month provides University of Arizona sudents and employees with a central hub of information on campus drug and alcohol policies and programs.

In addition to outlining the University's policies on alcohol abuse and the use of illicit drugs, the UA Safe and Drug Free Campus Web site offers details on a variety of UA programs that address substance abuse as well as links to general information on drug and alcohol use on college campuses.

"We wanted to put together a Web site that's a one-stop shop for all the programs around drug and alcohol prevention that we have," said David Salafsky, Campus Health Service's interim director of health promotion and preventive services.

The site was a collaborative effort of representatives from: Campus Health Service, UA Police Department, Dean of Students Office, Residence Life, Human Resources/Life & Work Connections, Risk Management & Safety, Arizona Athletics, Office of the General Counsel and Greek Life.

President Robert N. Shelton asks that all employees review The UA Statement on Drug Free Schools and Campuses and renew their commitment to promoting and maintaining a drug-free campus.

Under the federal Drug Free Workplace Act of 1988 and the Drug Free Schools and Communities Act of 1989, higher education institutions must share this information with their employees and students – and implement prevention programs – in order to be eligible for financial assistance under any federal program.
