Walsh

Substance Abuse Policy

Walsh will support activities and requirements of the Drug Free Workplace Act and Drug Free Schools and Campuses Act. It is a violation of Walsh policy for students, employees, or visitors to engage in the unlawful manufacture, distribution, possession, or use of a controlled substance on Walsh property.

Students in violation of the policy may face disciplinary action, including dismissal from the institution and/or appropriate criminal charges. Reinstatement to Walsh will be considered on a case-by-case basis. Reinstatement considerations will be reviewed only for students who have successfully completed a substance abuse program. Employees who are convicted of any criminal drug statute may be subject to disciplinary action up to and including termination of employment and/or be required to satisfactorily complete an approved drug abuse program at the employee’s expense.

Walsh will provide information regarding the dangers of drug abuse and referrals for assistance programs.
