The University prohibits the use or possession of alcoholic beverages in instructional settings, including those remote to the campus. There may arise occasions when a faculty/staff member may wish to have alcohol served at certain functions off campus. Examples include events commemorating the completion of an academic or general university program. It is expected that participants will be of legal age for consumption, as determined by U.S. law. Prior approval must be received from the Vice Chancellor under whose auspices the program occurs. Except in those cases approved by the Vice Chancellor, social activities with alcohol that involve both students and faculty that are sponsored or paid by the university or a university employee are prohibited.
