1.0 Introduction

Wheeling Jesuit University strives to maintain an environment that promotes the health and safety of the community and the responsible choices and behaviors of its members concerning the use of alcohol. The University recognizes that the consumption of alcohol in moderation by persons of legal drinking age can be a component of the social environment at the University. Therefore, students of legal drinking age are granted the privilege of responsible alcohol use on campus. The University strives to maintain an environment free of illicit drug use. Participation in behaviors related to use, distribution or possession of illicit drugs is not condoned within the campus community.

The University has adopted policies and standards to promote healthy and legal use of alcohol and the prevention of illicit drug use. Such policies are only one part of the University's efforts to encourage responsible choices and behavior; employees and students have shared responsibility for preventing alcohol abuse and illegal alcohol and illicit drug use at university affiliated events both on campus and off and assuring compliance with the Drug-Free Schools regulations.

1.1 Definitions
Alcohol: ethyl alcohol whatever its origin; includes synthetic ethyl alcohol but not denatured alcohol
Beer: any beverage obtained by the fermentation of barley, malt, hops, or any other similar product or substitute, and containing more alcohol than that of nonintoxicating beer.
Illicit Drugs: any substance that alters the mind in a psychoactive way and is illegal in the eyes of the law and punishable with criminal justice; includes but is not limited to marijuana/hashish, cocaine (including crack), heroin, hallucinogens, inhalants, or prescription-type psychotherapeutics used non-medically.
Intoxication: having one's faculties impaired by alcohol or other drugs to the point where physical or mental control or both are markedly diminished.
Manufacture: to distill, rectify, ferment, brew, make, mix, concoct, process, blend, bottle, or fill an original package with any alcoholic liquor.
Sale: any transfer, exchange or barter in any manner or by any means, for a consideration, and shall include all sales made by principal, proprietor, agent or employee.
Selling: includes solicitation or receipt of orders; possession for sale; and possession with intent to sell.
Public area: any place, building or conveyance on campus to which the public and/or members of the Wheeling Jesuit University community have, or are permitted to have access, including lobbies, and corridors of residence halls and on campus streets and walkways; does not include places of residence for students assigned to said residence.
University Break Period: anytime outside of the fall and spring academic semesters in which University housing is officially closed, including Thanksgiving Break, Winter Break, Spring Break, Easter Break, throughout summer housing (between the spring and fall semesters) and in the few weeks and/or days before the start of the fall semester and the end of the spring semester in which some students are allowed to move into campus housing early or to move out of campus housing later than normal.

This policy implements the Drug Free Schools and Communities Act (20 U.S.C. 1145g).

2.0 Purpose

The risks associated with the use of illicit drugs and the abuse of alcohol are numerous and include physical and mental impairment, emotional and psychological deterioration and devastating effects on family and friends. There are obvious risks such as suffering a hangover, being charged with driving under the influence or while intoxicated, and sustaining or causing personal injury. There are a number of less obvious risks associated with alcohol and other drug abuse that students might not realize, including:

  • Poor academic performance
  • Poor job performance
  • Poor social interactions
  • Unwanted and inappropriate sexual activity
  • Sexually transmitted diseases, including HIV/AIDS
  • Pregnancy
  • Jeopardizing future career prospects, (e.g., admission to law school and employment with the federal government)
In addition, alcohol and illicit drug abuse puts the user at considerable health risk, which can include nausea, vomiting, cancer, liver damage, elevated blood pressure, psychotic episodes, hallucinations and, in some cases, death. In addition to the risk to the abuser of illicit drugs and alcohol are the risks to fellow classmates, the public and to unborn children.

All students, whether on or off campus, must adhere to local and federal laws concerning alcohol use and are expected to conduct themselves in a manner consistent with University expectations. The University will not tolerate the unlawful manufacture and/or illegal purchase, consumption, possession, or distribution of alcohol to or by any student.

Local and federal laws prohibit the unlawful use, manufacture, possession, control, sale and dispensation of illicit drugs. These laws carry penalties for violations, including monetary fines and imprisonment. The unlawful manufacture, distribution, dispensation, possession or use of an illicit drug by a student on University property or as any part of a University-sponsored program on or off campus is strictly prohibited.

Any student who violates the Student Code of Conduct as it relates to alcohol and illicit drug use is subject to sanctions as outlined therein. See also the Penalties for violation of federal and local jurisdiction standards related to drugs and alcohol.

The University cooperates fully with law enforcement authorities. Violations of the Wheeling Jesuit University Alcohol and Illicit Drug Policy and/or the Student Code of Conduct that are also violations of federal and local law may be referred to the appropriate agencies. In such situations, cases may proceed concurrently in the University conduct system and in the criminal justice system.

5.0 Alcohol Usage Guidelines

Wheeling Jesuit University strives to promote legal, informed and healthy choices about the use of alcohol and drugs on and off-campus by all members of the community. Wheeling Jesuit University is subject to the same local and state laws that govern all citizens, including those concerning the possession, use, sale and distribution of alcohol; acts that violate these laws are in direct conflict with University regulations. Suspected student violations of the University Alcohol and Illicit Drugs Policy are processed through the student conduct system under the direction of the Dean of Student Development and/or his/her designee and will be subject to sanctions up to and including dismissal from the University.

Student Code of Conduct - "I. Violation of the Alcohol Policy"

  1. Possession of containers that previously contained alcoholic beverages.

    (Empty alcohol containers cannot be used as decorations; such containers will be considered an open container and deemed as proof of consumption and a violation of the alcohol policy. The policy applies to all students, regardless of age).

  3. Participation in and/or being in the presence of drinking games.

    Social drinking must never be undertaken to the detriment of, or in violation of, the rights of others. As such, students are reminded that it is their responsibility to be sober at all times. The University will not tolerate public drunkenness since intoxicated students act in a manner inconsistent with the values of the University, pose a threat to themselves, and can make life unpleasant for those with whom they live. Any student found in an intoxicated condition will be subject to appropriate sanctions. Determination as to whether or not a student is intoxicated may be made on the basis of use of a breathalyzer and/or the following factors including, but not limited to:

A zero tolerance policy for alcohol use is in place during these times. Students unable to abide by this policy should seek alternative housing arrangements off-campus; violators maybe subject to immediate housing suspension).

    The RATT is a social gathering place for students and other members of the University community. The RATT operates under a State liquor license and serves beer, malt beverages, and soft drinks during specified hours of operation in accord with local and state laws, and provides a venue for healthy, responsible and legal alcohol consumption. Violators of the Alcohol Policy in the RATT will face conduct action starting at a Level 3 (Conduct Probation) or Level 4 (Suspension) offense; employees who do not enforce the Alcohol Policy are subject to employment termination and conduct action. All alcoholic beverages must be purchased and consumed in the RATT. Individuals who wish to purchase, consume or have alcohol while in the RATT will be required to receive a hand stamp, wristband, or other means to designate them of legal drinking age.

6.0 Drug Usage Guidelines

The use, possession, and/or distribution of illicit drugs and/or drug paraphernalia of any kind is prohibited on campus. Wheeling Jesuit University does not permit marijuana for any purpose; students who qualify under local law to use marijuana for medical purposes may not possess, store, use or share marijuana on University owned or controlled property or during University sponsored events.

Student Code of Conduct - "L. Possession, use or delivery or coordinating the delivery of illicit drugs, as defined by the Alcohol & Illicit Drug Policy

7.0 Use of Breathalyzers

The University reserves the right to ask that students suspected of excessive alcohol use cooperate with the use of breathalyzers to assist University personnel in making sound decisions to ensure the safety and well-being of the student in question. Students refusing to cooperate and/or and who refuse off-campus medical treatment when determined necessary by the University, are subject to immediate Interim University Suspension; in such cases, students will be asked to leave campus immediately, pending the outcome of a conduct hearing. If the student cannot safely leave campus alone, he/she will be asked to wait in the Security Office until a responsible adult can come to campus to assist him/her; $50/hour will be charged for such supervision.

Students not of legal drinking age can request the use of a breathalyzer to prove that they have not consumed alcohol; every effort will be made to honor such requests. It is the responsibility of students to be aware of University policies, and by not requesting use of a breathalyzer, students may be held responsible for violating the University alcohol policy. If a student does request a breathalyzer and a positive test result for the consumption of alcohol occurs, the student will be charged with additional policy violations.

8.0 Alcohol Amnesty

Student health and safety are of primary concern at Wheeling Jesuit University. As such, in cases of intoxication, alcohol poisoning, or drug-related medical emergencies, Wheeling Jesuit University always encourages individuals to seek medical assistance for themselves or others.

Students who seek medical attention for themselves related to the use of drugs or alcohol will not be formally charged with a violation of the Wheeling Jesuit University Code of Conduct related to that use, provided that the student subsequently completes an assessment and any other recommended treatment from the Dean of Student Development and/or his//her designee. Failure to complete such assessment may result in additional sanctions being applied.

Students who seek medical attention for someone else related to the use of drugs or alcohol will not be charged with a violation of the Wheeling Jesuit University Code of Conduct related to that use.

Students who initiate reports of alleged sexual misconduct will not be formally charged with a violation of the Wheeling Jesuit University Code of Conduct related to alcohol and/or other drug use.

The Alcohol Amnesty policy does not excuse or protect students who repeatedly violate the University's Student Code of Conduct, in which case the University reserves the right to take conduct action on a case by case basis regardless of the manner in which the incident was reported. Additionally, the University reserves the right to adjudicate any case in which the violations are flagrant violations of the Student Code of Conduct and put the University community at risk. The University continues to reserve the right to notify parents as per the Parental Notification policy.

9.0 Sanctions for Alcohol Violations

The sanctions listed are guidelines and may be altered at the discretion of the Dean of Student Development and/or his/her designee; the list is not exclusive nor does it represent the maximum or minimum action that may be taken to address a particular concern. Sanctions may also be combined with other sanctions when violations of other tenets of the Student Code of Conduct occur at the same time; in such instance, the highest Level of violation will apply. Sanctions may be modified based on the severity of the incident, the impact on the community, and the student's individual conduct history; actions that lead to harm to self, others and/or property are considered may result in an immediate Level 4 or Level 5 offense. Sanctions are based on accumulation of student violations throughout time of study at Wheeling Jesuit University and students placed on a Level are subject to remain at that Level during the remainder of their time of study at the University.
