The University is committed to creating a quality learning environment in an atmosphere that is respectful, safe, and scholarly.
This policy shall guide the role of alcohol everywhere on the University of Vermont campus and at all events sponsored by UVM organizations, schools, or administrative units. Students, staff, and faculty members are encouraged to learn about the social, physiological, and psychological consequences of drinking and alcohol abuse. Excessive and high‐risk drinking can lead to negative consequences for the UVM community, including assault, illness, injury, litter, noise, property damage, and driving under the influence. All members of the UVM community share responsibility for creating an environment that limits dangerous drinking behaviors and, therefore, reduces the likelihood of these negative outcomes.
