As an institution dedicated to the intellectual, emotional and social development of the individual, Roosevelt University has always been committed to providing a secure, healthy environment conducive to maximum personal growth and academic achievement. Accordingly, Roosevelt University will maintain a drug-free environment for its students, faculty and staff by fully complying with all state and federal laws such as the Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act of 1986 and the Drug-Free Workplace Act of 1988. To further support its commitment to full compliance with these laws, the University may require employees to consent to drug or alcohol testing under specific conditions. These conditions include “reasonable suspicion” that the employee is under the influence; and after an employee sustains an accident in the course of employment that results in an injury to any person involved in the accident. A detailed policy is distributed annually to each employee.
Questions and referrals concerning the policy as it applies to faculty and staff may be directed to Office of Human Resources, Auditorium building 344 at (312) 341-4334.
