'U' to implement comprehensive alcohol, drug policy

y Daniel Poux
aily Administration Reporter
The University Administration
will implement a comprehensive
drug and alcohol policy - which
would monitor the non-academic be-
havior of students - Monday.
The guidelines - which apply to
students, staff, and faculty - will
go into effect even though the
specifics of the policy are incom-
*lete and University students and
faculty are unaware of the policy's
existence, said University Personnel
Director James Thiry.
In accordance with President
Bush's National Drug Policy, the
sweeping policy must prohibit the
"unlawful possession, use, or distri-
bution of illict drugs and alcohol by
students and employees on its prop-
rty or as part of its activities."
Details of the specific University
policy were unavailable to the Daily.

Interim Vice President for Student
Services Mary Ann Swain refused
According to the White House
mandate, all public universities in
the country must have such a policy
in effect by October 1, or be ineligi-
ble to receive all forms of financial
assistance under any federal program.
The Administration is required to
promptly distribute information,
comprehensively detailing the spe-
cific prohibited acts, as well as the
possible penalties for students
caught using alcohol or drugs on
campus on the new policy, to all
University students.
Thiry explained that the four-page
document detailing the new guide-
lines "are very nearly completed,"
and will be distributed to all Univer-
sity students and employees on all
three campuses - over 80,000

copies - sometime in early Octo-
ber. He added, however, that the pol-
icy will go into effect Monday
The distributed information must
contain a specific statement that the
University will take disciplinary ac-
tion against any student or employee
who is caught illegal drugs, or any
underag, student caught with alco-
hol, the federal mandate states.
The penalties must be "consistent
with local, State and Federal law,"
and include expulsion, employment
termination, and possible referral to
authorities for legal prosecution.
University sanctions may include
completion of a rehabilitation pro-
gram, and may be required for possi-
ble re-admission or rehiring.
The new directive is the direct re-
sult of President Bush's National
Drug Policy issued a year ago. The

presidential mandate asked Congress
to pass legislation to require univer-
sities to implement and enforce strict
drug and alcohol prevention pro-
grams as a condition for receiving
federal education subsidies.
Several sections of the mandated
guidelines require some elaboration,
including the definition of "campus
activities." Use, possession or dis-
tribution of alcohol or drugs on
University property or as part of
university activities is subject to
The appendix of the federal gov-
ernment's publication states that this
guideline applies "to all on-campus
and off-campus activities that are
considered to be school activities,"
such as university-sponsored field

Intruders awaken, antagonize
dorm residents; vandalize hall

by Josephine Ballenger

Daily Staff Writers
Ten to 15 young men banged on
dorm residents' doors, ripped down
posters, broke the glass of a fire ex-
tinguisher case, and yelled "Where
are the dykes?" as they ran through
an East Quad hallway yesterday at 3
The group fled after one of its
members injured himself, East Quad
residents reported.
Blood was discovered in the
stairwell, hallway, and near the fire
extinguisher of the dormitory's
Anderson hall, where the incident

Responding to several phone
calls, housing security officers ar-

harassers' flee, a hall resident
Hall residents also said the men
repeatedly yelled, "Tau Gamma Nu,"
the name of a University fraternity.
Some residents said they thought
the men were handing out bids -
invitations issued to potential frater-
nity members. University fraternities
chose new members this week.
However, Jeff Stacey, president
of the Interfraternity Council (IFC)

and a member of Tau Gamma Nu,
said his house did not give out bids
until last night.
Stacey said the group could have
purposely misidentified itself and the
members may or may not have be-
longed to the Greek system.
He added that when fraternity and
sorority members "do things as indi-
viduals... it looks like they're repre-
senting the Greek system," simply
because they are members. "They're
not representative," he said, but
"individual" acts.
