Student Conduct

Drug-Free Campus

Hawkeye strives to provide a drug-free campus to promote optimal learning. The possession, consumption, and use of alcoholic beverages, or any controlled substance on any Hawkeye property is inconsistent with the educational philosophy of Hawkeye.

Possession, consumption, and use of alcoholic beverages or controlled substances is not allowed unless items are used as a part of an approved educational program. Hawkeye controlled finances cannot be used for the purchase or sale of these items on or off Hawkeye's property unless items are used as a part of an approved educational program.

The possession of illegal drugs is not permitted on Hawkeye's property or while you are participating in a Hawkeye sponsored event off campus. Violations will result in disciplinary action and may have legal consequences as defined by federal, state, and local laws. (Drug-Free Workplace Act of 1988, P.L. 100-690)

Controlled Substances

Controlled substances include, but are not limited to illegal and prescription drugs.

It is illegal for any person to

  • manufacture, deliver, or possess a controlled substance
  • possess with the intent to manufacture or deliver a controlled substance
  • enter into a common scheme or design with, or conspire with one or more other persons to manufacture, deliver, or possess with intent to manufacture or deliver a controlled substance
  • possess with intent to deliver a counterfeit or simulated controlled substance

Offenses of controlled substances and penalties are described in full in Chapter 124 of the State of Iowa Code. Violations may result in simple, aggravated, or serious misdemeanors, or class C and D felony charges. Federal trafficking penalties can be found online. Students will be disciplined according to the Hawkeye's disciplinary policies.

Public Intoxication

It is illegal to use or consume alcoholic liquor, wine, or beer

  • on public streets or highways
  • in any public place except on premises covered by a liquor control license.

A person cannot be intoxicated or simulate intoxication in a public place.

Offenses of public intoxication and penalties are described in full in Chapter 123.46 of the State of Iowa Code. Violations may result in a simple misdemeanor.  Students will be disciplined according to the Hawkeye's disciplinary policies.

Alcohol and Other Drug Policy

Hawkeye recognizes alcohol and other drug abuse as a potential health, safety, and security problem. Drug and/or alcohol use can lead to abuse and addiction.  Continued use can lead to serious health problems and may even lead to death.

Students who need assistance with drug or alcohol abuse can contact Student Health Services or the counselors in Student Services.
