The University has a policy (for all categories of employees and students) regarding compliance with the Drug-Free Workplace Act of 1988 and the Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act Amendments of 1989. The policy is available in the University's Policies and Procedures Manual. In addition to the University's responsibilities for its employees and students, the federal government requires all persons working on contracts/grants to sign a certification regarding the use or manufacture of controlled substances.


The Office of Research, in concert with the University, requires all principal investigators/project directors working on contracts/grants to acknowledge their willingness to abide by the Drug-Free Workplace Act when they sign the Proposal Endorsement Form.


Refer to the Proposal Endorsement Form for the required certification.
