Procedures: Article I.06 Drug-Free Environment

Alcohol at Campus Events

The use of alcoholic beverages at any campus event is subject to approval from the College President and supervision by the College. Requests for approval from the College President must be submitted at least 60 days in advance of the event. Following such approval, notification that alcohol will be present at an event must be given to the Vice President for Administrative Services and the Director of Department of Public Safety/Chief of Police. Event organizers are responsible for obtaining all applicable government liquor licenses and for the cost of all such licenses.

Missouri State Liquor Control Law (Sec. 311.325 RSMo) stating that any person under the age of 21 cannot purchase, attempt to purchase, possess, or be served any intoxicating beverage. All faculty, staff, students and visitors are expected to observe and obey this law at campus events for which alcohol use has been approved.

St. Charles Community College does not intend to encourage the use of alcoholic beverages or to force consumption upon those who object to the use of alcohol on moral, ethical, or religious grounds. These procedures are designed to promote legal and responsible behavior regarding alcohol use.

Federally Controlled Substances

The St. Charles Community College Career Services Center will not approve job postings, recruitment, or internships involved with the use, production, testing, or distribution of medical or recreational marijuana.
