The Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act requires institutions of higher education to conduct a biennial review of their alcohol and other drug policies and prevention programs in order to identify and implement needed changes.

The biennial review has two objectives:

1. To determine the effectiveness of, and to implement any needed changes to the Alcohol and Other Drug (AOD) prevention program

2. To ensure that campuses enforce the disciplinary sanctions for violating standards of conduct consistently (DeRicco, 2006, p. 13)."

The following is the report resulting from the biennial review of the Alcohol and Other Drug (AOD) prevention program implementation and policy development/enforcement at St. Cloud State University for the period of spring semester of 2010 through fall semester of 2012 for students and employees.
