Drug & Alcohol Abuse Prevention Program

Baton Rouge Community College (BRCC) is committed to maintaining a drug free learning and workplace. The illegal use of drugs or alcohol for consumption within the BRCC campuses, offices or college activities interferes with the accomplishment of this mission.

It is understood that alcohol may be used in laboratory situations and should not be misused for other purposes. Various federal and state laws and regulations apply to students and employees of the BRCC including Federal Drug Free Workplace Act of 1988, the Drug-Free Schools and Communities Acts Amendments of 1989 (Public Law 101-226), and Revised Statutes of the State of Louisiana.

BRCC shall provide a safe, responsive environment for all students and employees.
