Concordia seeks to provide a campus environment that is conducive to learning and is committed to providing alternatives to alcohol and drug use through social and recreational opportunities. In order to foster this environment, the possession, use and/or sale of alcohol or illegal drugs by any student or their guest is not permitted on campus. Students possessing, using, or distributing/ selling alcohol or illegal drugs on campus or in college-owned housing, will be subject to disciplinary action.
In addition, in instances where college officials become aware that a Concordia student has: violated civil alcohol laws/ordinances; caused a disturbance off campus in connection with the use of alcohol or illegal drugs; or found to be in possession, using or distributing/selling illegal drugs off campus, the college reserves the right to take disciplinary action. If it is determined that a student is responsible for a college conduct violation involving alcohol or illegal drugs, and if the student is a dependent, the college may disclose the violation to their parent(s) and/ or guardian(s). Similarly, Concordia College does not allow alcohol or illegal drug use by college-related or sponsored student groups/organizations on or off campus.
If college officials determine that a student is at immediate risk due to alcohol and/or drug misuse, the student will be transported to an emergency room at one of the area hospitals or to the Clay County Detox Center, whichever is deemed appropriate at the time. All expenses incurred as a result are the responsibility of the student. In most cases, a parent and/or guardian will be informed.
