United Theological Seminary

Alcohol and Drug Education and Prevention

Policy Statement on Alcohol and Other Drugs

United takes alcohol and drug abuse seriously.  As a graduate educational institution, we place a great deal of responsibility on students who are of legal age to make the decision whether or not to consume alcohol and if they choose to consume alcohol, to do so responsibly.  As part of United’s drug and alcohol education and abuse prevention efforts, we maintain relationships with a number of drug and alcohol treatment centers in the region.

To comply with federal regulations (34 CFR 86.100 (a)(1), United Theological Seminary of the Twin Cities maintains the Standards of Conduct regarding the use of drugs at United or as part of an officially sponsored group of United in a setting other than United as found in the Masters Student Handbook (pp. 105-106).

Please see United’s Memorandum on Drugs and Drug Abuse.
