Enforcement & University Response

All students found in violation with the Tulane University Alcohol & Drug policy will go through the Office of Student Conduct. The Office of Student Conduct manages all non-academic misconduct allegations that involve Tulane students. The goal of the Student Conduct system is to educate students about appropriate behavior and decision-making and to foster a safe and healthy community in which academic success can occur. The Office of Student Conduct recognizes that college students make mistakes. Through the conduct process, we hope to help students learn strategies for making better choices in the future. If you would like to speak with a member of The Office of Student Conduct staff, please email conduct@tulane.edu or call 504-865-5516.

Biennial Review of Tulane's Alcohol & Other Drugs Policy

The Drug Free Schools and Communities Act requires, as a condition of receiving any federal funding or other financial assistance, that an institution of higher education certify it has adopted and implemented a program to prevent the unlawful possession, use or distribution of illicit drugs and alcohol for students and employees on school premises and as a part of its activities.  In accordance with this act passed by Congress, Tulane University is required to provide enrolled students, faculty and staff with various pieces of information regarding the unlawful use of drugs or alcohol on University property. The notification describes legal sanctions, health risks, available assistance and treatment avenues, as well as University-imposed disciplinary standards.
