Alcohol and Drug Policies
Wellesley College Alcohol and Drug Policy
Wellesley College is committed to providing an environment of well-being, learning, and accountability for its members. To this end, the Wellesley College Alcohol and Other Drugs Policy is grounded in four community standards derived from the Honor Code:
- compliance with governing law and College policies;
- respect for the Wellesley College community by minimizing the impact of alcohol and other drug use upon others;
- care for one’s own health and well-being; and
- prevention of harm and seeking of assistance and support for self or others.
This policy informs students of their individual, group, and community responsibilities regarding alcohol and other drugs, the College's response to violations, and the resources available for addressing alcohol and other drug-related concerns. Campus Police and Residential Life Professional Staff have primary responsibility for enforcement of this policy.
