Annual Policy Notification and Biennial Review

Annual Policy Notification

As per federal requirement, our Policy on Drugs and Alcohol 2017 (PDF), contains links to university policies and resources concerning the use of alcohol and other drugs. It can also found on the University Policies webpage. Below are direct links to the handbooks which also contain current drug and alcohol policies. 

Biennial Review

Northwestern University complies with the Drug-Free Schools and Campuses Regulations that requires Institutions of Higher Education to conduct a biennial review of their alcohol and other drug programs and policies (EDGAR Part 86.100). The review is completed in even-numbered years by a Biennial Review Working Group under the leadership of the Director of Health Promotion and Wellness.
