Maintaining a Drug-Free Campus

The Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act as articulated in the Department of Education Regulations, requires that the college adopt and implement a program to prevent the unlawful possession, use, or distribution of illicit drugs and alcohol by employees and students. This information is being published to comply with the provisions of this act.

Lee College has a Drug-Free Campus Program that serves to provide the campus with activities and services designed to encourage a healthy and drug-free lifestyle.
