Concordia University is a drug and alcohol-free community, and its primary concern is for the health, safety, and welfare of the university community. Concordia complies fully with local, state, and federal laws regarding the sale, possession, and consumption of alcoholic beverages. Additionally, the unlawful manufacture, possession, consumption, use, sale, or distribution of any illicit drugs, controlled substances, and mood-altering substances or possession of paraphernalia (including hookahs) on university property or as part of university activities is also strictly prohibited. All members of the university community are held responsible for their behavior and for respecting the rights of others.

Concordia endeavors to encourage a culture of compliance and is committed to providing education regarding the negative impacts of illicit drug use, misuse of prescription drugs, and the excessive or illegal consumption of alcohol. The University provides programs, support, and resources to promote health-enhancing experiences. Additionally, the University seeks to encourage responsible bystander behavior and timely reporting.
