Alcohol and Other Drug Policies

As a recipient of federal funding, the University of the Incarnate Word (UIW) is required to comply with the regulations set forth in the Drug Free Schools and Communities Act (EDGAR Part 86). As the University tenets of education and truth suggest, UIW is committed to continuously providing our students with up-to-date and comprehensive information.

The document below is a compilation of Texas state laws, health information, and University student policies and services pertaining to alcohol and other drug (AOD) use. It is important that all students review and understand this information as they proceed through academic careers at UIW.

Biennial Review

The Drug-Free Schools and Campuses Regulations requires institutions of higher education to conduct a review of their alcohol and other drug (AOD) programs and policies every two years to determine

  • program effectiveness
  • consistency of policy enforcement
  • to identify and implement any changes needed to either.

UIW completes these reviews in the summer and fall of even-numbered years, covering the previous two academic years. The next report is due to be published during the Fall 2020 semester.
