code of community responsibility

Alcohol Expectations, Resources, and Policies


The college recognizes its duty to educate students, faculty, and staff members concerning the significant problems surrounding the misuse of alcohol and other drugs. The abuse and illegal use of alcohol and other drugs is detrimental to scholastic endeavors, enjoyable social activity, personal growth, and the welfare of the campus community.

Individual Responsibility Statement. All members of the Colby-Sawyer community are expected to be familiar with and abide by college policies governing the use of alcohol and other drugs. Members of the college community, as well as visitors and guests, must be aware that they are legally responsible should their behavior, with respect to alcohol or other drug use, jeopardize themselves, the safety or welfare of any person, or result in damage to property. Alcohol or drug consumption is not a valid excuse for inappropriate behavior. Behavior resulting from intoxication, or any chemical substance which causes or can be expected to cause harm to any person, damage to property, or disruption to the college environment is not acceptable and will be dealt with directly through the conduct system and/or the appropriate law enforcement agency.
