Lincoln College is concerned about health and safety.  Abuse of alcohol and controlled substances can seriously impair health and the ability to work and study.  It can pose a threat to the safety and well-being of others.

Lincoln College promotes an environment that rejects substance abuse as an acceptable lifestyle, informs about resources for preventing or treating substance abuse, and helps people to make healthy decisions about alcohol and other drugs.  It is important to be aware of Lincoln College’s standard of conduct and disciplinary actions taken against students or employees who violate that standard.

Prevention of substance abuse is sought in several ways by:

  • Promoting accurate information on drug use
  • Encourage healthy use of leisure time through recreation and other activities
  • Enhancing skills for dealing with stress and
  • Working through campus leaders and influences to establish a healthy environment
