In accordance with the Drug-Free Workplace Act of 1988 (P.L. 100-690), the Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act of 1989 (P.L. 101-226) and 34 Code of Federal Regulation Part 84, Subpart F, this institution is committed to maintaining a drug-free workplace and a drug-free school. Drug and alcohol abuse can lead to liver, heart and other chronic diseases, low birth weight, birth defects and infant mortality in expectant mothers, and death. The unlawful manufacture, distribution, dispensing, possession or use of drugs, alcohol or other controlled substances at this institution is strictly prohibited. Students and employees are required, as a condition of enrollment and/or employment, to abide by this policy.
To the extent allowed by local, state and federal laws, this institution will impose disciplinary action against students and employees for violating these standards of conduct. These actions may include suspension, expulsion, and termination of employment, referral for prosecution and/or required completion of a drug or alcohol rehabilitation or similar program.
This institution, as required by federal regulation (34 CFR 85.635 and Appendix C), will report all employees convicted of a criminal drug offense occurring in the workplace to the U.S. Department of Education. Consistent with these same regulations, employees, as a condition of employment, are required to provide written notice to this institution of their conviction for a criminal drug offense occurring at the workplace within five (5) days after that conviction.
The possession, use, sale, manufacture, or distribution of illegal or controlled substances or alcohol is a violation of school policy. Furthermore, a student is in violation of these regulations if:
If reasonable suspicion of controlled substance or drug paraphernalia activity exists, School staff retains the right to inspect student property as necessary. Reasonable suspicion may be generated by observable (seeing, smelling, etc.) drugs or drug paraphernalia and/or other physical or behavioral evidence of drug usage, and may result in confiscation of such materials. School Administration maintains the right to require drug toxicology testing if reasonable suspicion of the use of an illegal or controlled substance(s) exists. The administration may require drug toxicology testing in certain situations (e.g. any violent and/or antisocial behavior, damage to personal or school property, etc.) Refusal of students to abide by the request for drug toxicology testing will result in immediate, automatic suspension from the University for no less than one quarter, with additional stipulations. The cost associated with the testing is the responsibility of the student.
No firearms, ammunition, explosive devices or other weapons may be carried (concealed or otherwise) by a student on institutional property. Violators of this policy are considered to be a threat to the academic environment of the institution and are subject to immediate suspension or dismissal from the University.
In the event of fire or emergency evacuation, everyone must proceed immediately to the nearest exit. A Wongu staff member will be designated to ensure that everyone in the facility has been evacuated. Students must follow directions given by this designee, and should not re-enter the building until instructed to do so.
Wongu University maintains a full Emergency Action and Fire Prevention Plan in compliance with 29 CFR 1910.38. The plan in its entirety is made public at the Wongu University campus, and can be obtained by contacting the Safety Officer at (702) 463-2122.
Wongu University is committed to providing reasonable accommodations to students with documented disabilities. Students with a disability will not, on the basis of that disability, be denied full and equal access to academic and co-curricular programs or activities or otherwise be subjected to discrimination under program offered by the University. Students who require accommodations are encouraged to request them prior to the start of a term, but can do so at any time.
Disabled students’ rights are protected under Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA), and the Americans with Disabilities Amendments Act of 2008. It is the policy of Wongu University to ensure that no qualified student with a disability is excluded from participation in or subjected to discrimination in, any University program, activity, or event.
If a student feels he or she has been discriminated against because of a disability by another student or by University personnel, he or she has the right to request an investigation into such a matter.
