Northern Arizona University is committed to providing a healthy educational environment, consistent with university policies and free from unlawful acts. In addition, NAU must certify compliance with The Drug-Free Workplace Act (41 USCA 701), The Safe and Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act (20 USCA 7101), and The Drug and Alcohol Abuse Prevention Regulations (34 CFR 86). As such, the university is taking this opportunity to inform each student of the health risks, university policies, university and legal sanctions, the prevention/intervention programs associated with alcohol and other drug abuse, and information concerning medical marijuana, as well as the university’s tobacco-free policy. The links at the bottom of this page will direct you to that information. We encourage you to review these materials so that you may make educated and informed decisions related to alcohol and drugs.
