Florida Community College–Drug Education Policy

Florida Community College is committed to providing an environment that enhances and supports student success. The academic community, including faculty, administrators, staff and students, has the collective responsibility to ensure that this environment is conducive to the student’s development. The illegal use of harmful and addictive chemical substances poses a threat to the educational environment. Thus, in accordance with the Drug Free Schools and Communication Act Amendments of 1989, signed by President George Bush, it is necessary to inform the College community of the harmful and addictive potential associated with the use of drugs, the incompatibility of illegal drugs with the educational mission of Florida Community College, and the consequences of the use, possession, manufacture or sale of such drugs.

The Florida Community College District Board of Trustees Rules outline the accepted code of conduct for students and employees. The code, as documented in the student handbook and the College catalog, includes the following.

  1. Any act or behavior on the part of the student which tends to interfere with or otherwise disturb the orderly conduct, processes, functions and/or interests of the College is prohibited.
  2. Such acts or behaviors may include but are not limited to the following: consumption of alcoholic beverages on campus or at a College function, illegal use or possession of drugs or narcotics on campus or at a College function.
  3. The College reserves the right to suspend, terminate or retroactively cancel the enrollment of any student for disciplinary reasons. The College may also make a referral to legal authorities for appropriate action.

A complete set of charts outlining the penalties for federal drug trafficking and the controlled substances involved are maintained in each campus counseling and advising center.

As a public institution whose mission is to foster human potential, Florida Community College believes it is important to understand the health risks and other detrimental consequences associated with drug and alcohol abuse.

The student affairs department can assist students with referral information to appropriate community resources in a confidential, professional manner. Counselors are available on all campuses to assist both day and evening students in obtaining further information. All contacts relating to substance abuse will be held in strict confidence.

Crime Awareness and Campus Security

Florida Community College is dedicated to providing a safe working and learning environment for all students, employees and guests. In order for these individuals to promptly report criminal actions or other emergencies, Florida Community College maintains a security office at each of its sites. The College’s security officers are unarmed and do not have police powers, but they work closely with local law enforcement agencies on follow up actions or investigations related to criminal activities on campus. All students and employees are encouraged to promptly report any criminal or suspicious activity to the nearest security office.

The College has no recognized fraternities or other off-campus student organizations, therefore no records are maintained on liquor, drugs or weapons violations by students associated with such organizations.

The College strictly prohibits: (1) consumption of alcohol on campus or at College functions, unless specifically approved by the College President, (2) use, manufacture or possession of illegal drugs or narcotics on campus or at College functions (3) carrying any type of weapon, concealed or otherwise, on campus, except as part of the law enforcement training program; no weapon may be secured in any vehicle parked on College property, (4) smoking in any College building.

The College complies with the provisions of the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act, and other applicable laws pertaining to College safety and security practices. To obtain a list of sexual offenders, visit to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement or call 888.FLPREDATOR.

Sexual assault is a serious crime which has a major impact on the campus community as well as on those who are victimized. The College will not tolerate sexual assault in any form, including date and acquaintance sexual assault. Should probable cause be determined that campus regulations prohibiting sexual assault have been violated, disciplinary action will be pursued through the code of student conduct or other appropriate internal processes. Discipline may result in suspension or dismissal from the College.

Any student or employee reporting a sexual assault will be treated with respect and sensitivity. Contacts and conversations which transpire pursuant to this procedure will be held in confidence. Students who believe they have been sexually assaulted and wish further information or assistance may contact the Campus Dean of Student Success for assistance. All reported cases will be referred to the appropriate campus security office. The security officer will complete a Security Incident Report and forward it to the College Equity Officer, and in the case of a student complainant, notify the Dean of Student Success.

The information below indicates the number of occurrences for various crimes that have occurred on Florida Community College facilities for the last three years. Campus crime statistics and a Daily Crime Log are available at each security office.
