Biennial Review for Alcohol and Drug Programs

The Higher Education Act of 1965 (as amended by the Safe and Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act of 1994) requires that every institution of higher education (IHE) receiving federal financial aid must adopt and implement a program to prevent the use of illicit drugs and the abuse of alcohol by students and employees both on its premises and as a part of any of its activities.  The Department of Education regulation at 34 C.F.R. "Part 86", implements this provision, requiring that colleges and universities such as Missouri State University must 1) distribute certain drug and alcohol prevention information to students and employees every year, and 2) conduct a Biennial Review of illicit drug and alcohol prevention programs every other year.
