Drugs, Alcohol, and Tobacco Policy

Harford Community College is dedicated to maintaining an educational environment in which students are enriched and prepared for productive participation in society, thus enhancing the quality of community life.

The College is committed to providing a campus that is free of illegal drug use and drug and alcohol abuse, and in so doing supports the Drug Free Schools and Communities Act of 1989, which states that the use of illegal drugs and the abuse of alcohol by students and campus members can significantly impede the learning process.

The College recognizes drug and alcohol abuse as an illness and a major health problem. The College also recognizes drug and alcohol abuse as a potential safety and security problem. Therefore, College Life and Wellness offers a number of educational programs throughout the year to encourage awareness among students, faculty, and staff about the hazards of drug and alcohol abuse.

Smoke and Tobacco-Free Campus Policy

It is the policy of Harford Community College that the College is a smoke- and tobacco-free environment. The use of any type of tobacco product, smoking device or equipment, or any item that simulates smoking is prohibited in all buildings and areas of the campus and off-campus sites supervised by the College. Violators are subject to a $75 fine and/or disciplinary action.
