Alcohol and Other Drugs

U.S Department of Education Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act (DFSCA) Drug and Alcohol Abuse Prevention Regulations

Part 86, the Drug and Alcohol Abuse Prevention Regulations (Education Department General Administrative Regulations [EDGAR]), requires that, as a condition of receiving funds or any other form of financial assistance under any federal program, an institution of higher education (IHE) must certify that it has adopted and implemented a program to prevent the unlawful possession, use, or distribution of illicit drugs and alcohol by students and employees.

If audited, failure to comply with the Drug and Alcohol Abuse Prevention Regulations may cause an institution to forfeit eligibility for federal funding.

In order to be able to certify its compliance with the regulations, an IHE must adopt and implement a drug prevention program to prevent the unlawful possession, use, or distribution of illicit drugs and alcohol by all students and employees both on school premises and as part of any of its activities. Creating a program that complies with the regulations requires an IHE to do the following:

  • Annually notify each employee and student, in writing, of standards of conduct; a description of appropriate sanctions for violation of federal, state, and local law and campus policy; a description of health risks associated with AOD use; and a description of available treatment programs.­­
  • Develop a sound method for distributing annual notification information to every student and staff member each year.
  • Prepare a biennial review on the effectiveness of its AOD programs and the consistency of sanction enforcement.
  • Maintain its biennial review on file, so that, if requested to do so by the U.S. Department of Education, the campus can submit it.

Prevention, Education and Support

The Student Health Services Prevention and Wellness department offers a variety of individual and group education programs. Individual and group educational programs and interventions are designed to prevent and reduce alcohol and other drug use/abuse on the Oregon State University campus community. These programs include:

  • e-CHUG Online. The e-CHUG is a brief, anonymous, online assessment tool. This individual assessment takes approximately 10 minutes to complete and helps students understand their use of alcohol.
  • e-TOKE Online. The electronic THC Online Knowledge Experience, or e-TOKE, is a brief, interactive marijuana-specific assessment and feedback tool that provides individual insight into marijuana use, utilizing personalized information about students’ behaviors and risk factors. The anonymous, self-guided assessment takes approximately 10-15 minutes to complete.
  • AlcoholEdu. All first year, Corvallis-based and OSU Cascades, Newport and LaGrande-based, degree-seeking students are required to complete the online program, AlcoholEdu. This requirement helps to foster an environment that prevents high-risk alcohol use and subsequent negative academic and personal outcomes. AlcoholEdu is one of many methods which attempt to correct college myths and norms, as well as provide students with relevant policies and resources prior to matriculation.
    There is evidence which supports the efficacy of AlcoholEdu. In the program, students are taken through several interactive modules, including: how to recognize and respond to an alcohol-related emergency; how to adopt low-risk drinking strategies; how to model safer decision-making; and strategies to be an active bystander. Students are required to participate in Part One of this two-part course prior to the first day of classes, and Part Two 30 days after completion of Part One. If a student does not complete AlcoholEdu, a grade hold is placed on their student account. That hold is lifted once all parts of the course are completed.
  • Up2u. The Up2u program is an education-based campus prevention effort that focuses on the reduction of highrisk alcohol use. Up2u is a voluntary program, and presentations are available upon request for students, student organizations, faculty, staff, coaches, and the Center for Fraternity and Sorority Life. Students can also meet with Up2u staff to ask questions or receive information. To request information on Up2u, please contact Student Health Services at 541-737-9355 or you can request a workshop online.
  • Prevention and Advocacy Coalition. Oregon State University has created the Prevention and Advocacy Coalition which is charged with coordinating campus-wide strategic efforts related to drug/ alcohol use prevention (along with hazing prevention, violence prevention, and survivor advocacy). Utilizing evidence-informed best practices, the coalition focuses on a multi-unit stakeholder approach to expand reach across the campus and into the larger Corvallis community to reach a set of common goals in prevention and advocacy.
  • Collegiate Recovery Community: Student Success Built on Sobriety.
    541-737-1184 or recovery@oregonstate.edu
    The Collegiate Recovery Community (CRC) seeks to engage and support students in recovery from substance use or those who are contemplating entering into recovery. The community is rooted in the belief that no student should feel alone and that every student should receive the support they need, in the way they need it, from the people who they find most comfortable. The CRC’s doors are open to anyone who is looking for support. Additionally, Dixon Lodge is a dedicated recovery living community with scholarships available to students.

C. ALCOHOL AND OTHER DRUG POLICIES

Oregon State University responds to cases of alcohol abuse and illegal drug activity by employees or students on a case-by-case basis. Details of each case are taken into consideration along with outcome of any legal action against the individual. Employees and students found to be in violation of the University’s drug-free campus and workplace policy may be subject to conduct or disciplinary sanctions consistent with applicable provisions of state, federal, and local laws, as well as University and Oregon State Board of Higher Education administrative rules.

Sanctions imposed by the University can range from a warning or disciplinary action up to and including termination of employment or suspension/expulsion from school. Other potential sanctions may include employment or academic probation, restrictions, attendance in an educational program, or referral to counseling or treatment. OSU employees and students who violate drug laws are subject to prosecution in the courts.

Additionally, the law requires the University to report to the United States Department of Education any recipient of federal financial aid (e.g., Pell Grants, research grants) who is convicted of a drug-related crime on University property or at University events. The law also requires the University to report to federal agencies any employee convicted of violating a criminal drug statute if the employee is involved in work which is supported by that federal agency. As an academic community, Oregon State University is committed to providing an environment in which learning and scholarship can flourish.

The possession or use of illegal drugs, or the abuse of those which may otherwise be legally possessed, seriously affects the University environment, as well as the individual potential of our students and staff. The University enforces federal, state, and local laws and related University policies, including those prohibiting the following activities:

A. Alcohol. The following behavior is prohibited:

  • a. use, possession, or procurement of alcohol by persons under the legal drinking age; students are also considered to be in possession if the substance is in their bodies or the use is otherwise detectable
  • b. furnishing, manufacturing, distributing, or selling alcohol except as expressly permitted by law and the University’s policies regarding alcohol 
  • c. driving under the influence of alcohol in excess of the applicable legal limit 
  • d. public intoxication, possession, or use while on University property or at events except as expressly permitted by University policies regarding alcohol 
  • e. disruptive behavior or other Code violations due to alcohol intoxication regardless of location 
  • f. failure of a Student Organization to take all necessary steps to ensure that no person under the legal drinking age possesses alcoholic beverages at functions it sponsors or organizes, or within any property or transportation it owns, operates, and/ or rents
  • g. using alcohol to facilitate incapacitation or forcing ingestion of alcohol without consent

B. Marijuana. The following behavior is prohibited:

  • a. use, possession, or procurement of marijuana or its derivatives or paraphernalia related to use by persons under the legal age; students are also considered to be in possession if the substance is in their bodies or the use is otherwise detectable 
  • b. public intoxication, possession, or use of marijuana or its derivatives or paraphernalia related to use while on University property or at University events 
  • c. furnishing, manufacturing, distributing, or selling marijuana or its derivatives except as expressly permitted by law 
  • d. driving under the influence of marijuana or its derivatives 
  • e. disruptive behavior or other Code violations due to marijuana intoxication regardless of location 
  • f. failure of a Student Organization to take all necessary steps to ensure that no person under the legal age possesses or consumes marijuana or its derivatives at functions it sponsors or organizes, or within any property or transportation it owns, operates, and/or rents
  • g. facilitating incapacitation or ingestion without consent through the use of marijuana or its derivatives.

C. Drugs. The following behavior is prohibited, where “drugs” includes but is not limited to federally controlled substances, synthetic drugs or inhalants, natural substances used for drug effects, and medication used/ possessed/handled in non-prescribed manners:

  • a. use, possession, or procurement of drugs or paraphernalia related to use; students are also considered to be in possession if the substance is in their bodies or the use is otherwise detectable 
  • b. furnishing, manufacture, distribution, or sale of drugs except as expressly permitted by law
  • c. public intoxication due to drug use 
  • d. driving under the influence of drugs
  • e. disruptive behavior or other Code violations due to drug intoxication regardless of location 
  • f. failure of a Student Organization to take all necessary steps to ensure that no person possesses or consumes drugs at functions it sponsors or organizes, or within any property or transportation it owns, operates, and/or rents
  • g. facilitating incapacitation or ingestion without consent through the use of drugs.

The University strongly encourages students and staff members to voluntarily obtain assistance for dependency or abuse of alcohol or drugs before such behavior results in an arrest and/or disciplinary referral which might result in their separation from the institution. The use of, or addiction to, alcohol, marijuana, or controlled substances is not considered excuse for violations of the Student Code of Conduct or faculty/ staff expectations, and will not be a mitigating factor in the application or appropriate disciplinary sanctions for such violations.

Help is available both on campus and within the community for students and faculty/staff members who are dependent on, or who abuse the use of alcohol or other drugs. Oregon State University’s Student Health Services (541-737-9355) or Counseling and Psychological Services (541-737-2131), Human Resources Employee Assistance Program (1-800-433- 2320), and other professional agencies will maintain the confidentiality of persons seeking help for personal dependency and will not report them to institutional or state authorities.

D. STANDARDS OF CONDUCT AND DISCIPLINARY SANCTIONS FOR STUDENTS REGARDING ALCOHOL AND DRUG USE

Disciplinary Sanctions per Student Code of Conduct The University utilizes an educational and restorative sanctioning model. The sanction applied will be proportionate with the violation committed and become progressively more demanding or severe if the Student or Student Organization repeats violations, or otherwise demonstrates that learning has not taken place. Multiple or on-going violations may, therefore, result in severe sanctions such as deferred suspension, suspension, or expulsion.

Violations that negatively affect the health, safety and wellbeing of the community are deemed the most severe and may result, upon the first violation, in suspension or expulsion. Students or Student Organizations who receive probation, deferred suspension, suspension or expulsion sanctions, or Students or Student Organizations who fail to complete sanctions are considered not in good standing with the University. Any sanctions will be tracked by the hearing officer, SCCS office, or designee until completion.

Failure to satisfactorily complete sanctions as assigned will likely result in a registration hold that will prevent a student’s registration-related actions until conditions of sanctions are met. Students or Student Organizations exhibiting behavior that violates any part of the Code of Student Conduct are subject to one or more of the following:

  1. Warning: Official notice to a Student or Student Organization exhibiting behavior that violates any part of the Code of Student Conduct. The continuation of such behavior may result in further conduct action.
  2. Required Educational Activities: Mandatory participation in educational activities. Such educational activities include but are not limited to completion of a report or attendance at a seminar or other educational program or presentation.
  3. University/Community Service Work Hours: Requirement to complete a specified number of hours of service to the University or general community.
  4. Behavioral Expectations: A written list of specific behavioral expectations the University has in order for the Student to continue at the institution.
  5. Restitution: A requirement that a Student or Student Organization provide reimbursement by dollar amount, by transfer of property, or by provision of services to the University or a member of the community in accordance with the nature of the violation and in an amount not more than actual expenses, damages, or losses incurred.
  6. Restriction/Exclusion: Restrictions on participation in meetings, denial of entry to specific University facilities, prohibition of presence in certain areas, or other restrictions consistent with the violation committed. For a Student Organization, restrictions may include denial of specific University privileges including, but not limited to, sponsored social activities, sponsored parties or philanthropy, participation in intramurals, representing the University and any travel in connection with such representation, recruitment, membership or representation on a governing council, use of University space for a meeting or event, participation in competition and events, and receipt of institutional funding.
  7. No Contact Directive: A directive to a Student to refrain from any intentional contact, direct or indirect, with one or more designated persons through any means, including personal contact, e-mail, telephone, social media, or third parties.
  8. Academic Sanction: Students whose behavior is found to constitute Academic Misconduct as defined in Section 4.2 are subject to additional academic sanctions, which may include, but are not limited to, failing the course, restriction from course withdrawal, grade replacement provisions, or removal from an academic department, college or program. Students may also be sanctioned to complete the online Academic Integrity Course.
  9. Removal from a Class: A Student’s removal from a class may be temporary or permanent. Permanent removal from a class may be authorized by the Director of SCCS with agreement from the Dean of the College in which the class is offered. A Student who is permanently removed from a class will receive a “W” (Withdrawal) on the academic transcript, unless removed in conjunction with an academic misconduct violation that warrants an “F” grade for the course, in which the student will receive an “F” on the academic transcript. In instances where a student is removed from class due to a finding of responsibility for under this Code, no automatic refunds for tuition or other class fees will be made.
  10. Residential Disciplinary Probation: Applies to students who have a contract with University Housing and Dining Services (UHDS). Residential disciplinary probation means that the student is not in good standing with UHDS, and any further violation may result in relocation or cancellation of a student’s housing contract.
  11. University Conduct Probation: Placement on probationary status during which there is review of behavior and the Student or Student Organization must demonstrate compliance with the Code of Student Conduct. Terms of the conduct probation will be determined at the time the probation is imposed and may include additional sanctions including but not limited to loss of privileges, restrictions, restitution, and/or required educational activities. University conduct probation means that the student 21 is not in good standing with the University, and any further violations may result in the Student or Student Organization’s suspension or expulsion from or loss of recognition with the University.
  12. Conduct Suspension:
    1. Deferred Suspension: Deferred suspension is applied when it is determined that the actions and behavioral pattern warrant separation from the Institution, but the hearing body and sanctioning authority deems it allowable for the student to remain enrolled, contingent on completion of and adherence to all terms of sanctions assigned and all University policies and rules. Failure to complete sanctions as assigned or meet identified conditions of continued enrollment or another violation of the Code of Student Conduct during a period of deferred suspension, will result in immediate suspension when substantiated either through a Student/Student Organization taking responsibility for the behavior or through an additional student conduct process. Further violation(s) may increase the period of suspension or subject the accused to further sanctions such as expulsion or degree revocation.
    2. Suspension:
      i. Student - Suspended Students are denied the privileges and services provided to currently enrolled Students, including residing in University-owned or recognized Student housing, attending class, or using other University services or facilities. A sanction of suspension carries with it exclusion from the University and all University property for a specific period of time, unless otherwise noted. Suspension is generally for at least one year; however, the period of Suspension may be specified for any period of time.
      ii. Student Organization – Loss of University recognition or registration for a specified period of time. A suspended Student Organization may not use University resources or participate in University activities in a manner that emulates the activities of a recognized Student Organization, including but not limited to recruitment, initiation, or group participation in service, philanthropy or events. The Organization must comply with all sanctions prior to being registered or recognized again.
      iii. The conditions of Suspension take effect immediately when the Student or Student Organization is informed of the outcome in a notice of decision. If a suspended Student files an appeal, the imposition of the Suspension will be stayed until the conclusion of the appeal process as long as the Student is not excluded from the campus under Administrative Suspension (See Section 9).
      iv. If a pending conduct hearing or appeal may result in Suspension, awarding of a Student’s academic degree will be postponed pending the outcome of the conduct proceedings.
  13. Expulsion: Removes the student from their academic program and separates the student from the University without the opportunity to graduate or reenroll in the future. Expelled Students will also be excluded from the University and all University property, unless otherwise noted.
    1. The conditions of Expulsion take effect immediately when the Student is informed of the outcome in a notice of decision. If an appeal is filed, the imposition of the Expulsion will be stayed until the conclusion of the appeal process as long as the student is not excluded under Administrative Suspension (See Section 9).
    2. If a pending conduct conference, hearing or appeal may result in Expulsion, awarding of a Student’s academic degree will be postponed pending the outcome of the conduct proceedings.
  14. Student Organization Recognition Revocation: Permanent revocation of University recognition of a Student Organization. The conditions of Recognition Revocation take effect immediately when the Student Organization is informed of the decision. If an appeal is filed, the imposition of the Recognition Revocation continues to be in effect pending the outcome of the appeal.
  15. Degree Revocation: A degree awarded from the University may be revoked for fraud, misrepresentation, or other violation of University standards in obtaining the degree, or for other serious conduct violations committed by a student prior to graduation. The Office of the Registrar maintains the authority to revoke academic credit and degrees awarded in error. Therefore, in instances where an investigation as outlined in this Code would result in a recommended sanction of degree revocation, such a recommendation will be made to the Office of the Registrar by SCCS.
    For more information about degree revocation, please see Commonly Imposed Disciplinary Sanctions for On-Campus Alcohol or Other Drug Policy Violations

established by the Oregon Liquor Control Commis- sion under ORS 471.750 qualifies for the payment of business loss compensation under this section if:

The system for selling containers of distilled liquor at retail in this state changes after the person assumes operation of the store; and

The system change results from a law that prohibits the commission from purchasing or selling distilled liquor.

(2) The purpose of business loss compensa- tion is to offset the actual or presumed sales reduc- tion and actual or perceived devaluation of a liquor store business following a system change described in subsection (1) of this section. The commission shall pay a person qualifying under this section business loss compensation equal to four percent of the average annual gross distilled liquor sales made by the store during the five years that preceded the system change, whether or not the person was the store operator during the entire five-year period. If

the store has operated less than five years prior to the system change, the commission shall pay compensa- tion equal to four percent of the average annual gross distilled liquor sales made by the store prior to the system change.

(3)(a) The commission shall pay any business loss compensation due under this section from the suspense account described in ORS 471.805. Except as otherwise required by federal or state law or by contract, the commission shall give the payment of business loss compensation priority over the payment of other debts from the suspense account.

(b) Notwithstanding ORS 279A.250 to 279A.290 or the revolving fund balance limit estab- lished in ORS 471.805, if a change in the system for selling containers of distilled liquor at retail in this state results in business loss compensation being payable under this section, and the commission de- clares within five years after the system change that a warehouse established by the commission under ORS

471.750 or the inventory of the commission is sur- plus property, the net proceeds from sale of the ware- house or inventory remaining after deduction of sales costs shall be deposited to the suspense account de- scribed in ORS 471.805. All moneys deposited under this paragraph shall be kept in a subaccount within the suspense account that indicates the source of the moneys. Notwithstanding ORS 471.805, moneys de- posited to the suspense account under this paragraph may not be transferred to the Oregon Liquor Control Commission Account if any business loss compen- sation is owed and remains unpaid. This paragraph does not restrict the source for paying business loss compensation from the suspense account or alter

the priority of business loss compensation payment established in paragraph (a) of this subsection.

If a person that receives business loss compensation under this section brings any action against the commission for damages resulting from a change in the system for selling containers of distilled liquor at retail in this state, the business loss com- pensation received by the person as a result of that system change shall be an offset against any damages awarded the person in the action. This subsection does not create any new cause of action.

Business loss compensation received by a person under this section does not affect the claiming of any tax deduction by the person for depreciation of equipment, fixtures or other property improvements, but is ordinary business income of the person, taxable as provided by law. [2015 c.228 §2]

 

471.475 Mixing, storing or serving of liquor without license. No person who owns, operates or conducts a private or public club or place and who is not in possession of a license issued by the Oregon Liquor Control Commission permitting the mixing, storing and serving of alcoholic liquor at said premises, and no agent, servant or employee of such person, for a financial consideration by way of a charge for service, membership fee, admission fee, initiation fee, club dues, contributions, or other fee or charge, shall serve or permit to be served, or use or permit to be used, any room, place, bar, glasses, mixers, locker, storage place, chairs, tables, cash registers, music devices, furniture, furnishings, equipment or facilities, for the mixing, storing, serving or drinking of alcoholic liquor.

The keg identification shall be in the form of a numbered label prescribed and supplied by the commission which identifies the seller and which is removable or obliterated when the keg is processed for refilling. The receipt shall be on a form prescribed and supplied by the commission and shall include the name and address of the purchaser; motor vehicle operator’s license number, if any; the automobile registration of the motor vehicle in which the keg was removed from the seller’s premises, if any; and such other identification as the commis-

sion by rule may require.

A copy of the receipt shall be given to the purchaser and the seller shall retain the original receipt for such period as the commission by rule may require.

Possession of a keg containing malt bever- ages which is not identified as required by subsection

of this section is a Class A misdemeanor.

A person who signs a receipt described in subsection (1) of this section in order to obtain a keg, knowing the receipt to be false, or who falsifies any information required on the receipt, is guilty of false swearing as prescribed by ORS 162.075.

cable minimum age requirement created under this chapter or under commission rules. If the person does not provide the commission with acceptable proof of age upon request, the commission may require the person to immediately cease any activity that is sub- ject to a minimum age requirement until the commis- sion receives acceptable proof of age. If the activity

is the sole lawful basis for the person to be present on the premises, the commission may require that the person leave the premises. This subsection does not apply to a person temporarily at the premises to make a service, maintenance or repair call, to make a delivery or for other purposes independent of the premises operations.

If a person performing work that is subject to a minimum age requirement has not provided proof of age requested by the commission under subsection (3) of this section, the commission may request that the licensee or a manager of the premis- es provide proof that the person meets any applicable minimum age requirement created under this chapter or under commission rules. Failure of the licensee

or manager to respond to a request made under this subsection by providing acceptable proof of age for a person is prima facie evidence that the licensee has allowed the person to perform work at the licensed premises in violation of a minimum age requirement.

471.482 Sale or service of liquor by em- ployees 18 years of age or older generally; rules; minimum age requirements.

The holder of a license issued under this chapter may employ persons 18, 19 and 20 years of age who may take orders for, serve and sell alcoholic liquor in any part of the licensed premises when that activity is incidental to the serving of food except in those areas classified by the Oregon Liquor Control Commission as being prohibited to the use of minors. However, no person who is 18, 19 or 20 years of age shall be permitted to mix, pour or draw alcoholic liquor except when pouring is done as a service to the patron at the patron’s table or drawing is done in a portion of the premises not prohibited to minors.

A person who is 18, 19 or 20 years of age may enter areas classified by the commission as being prohibited to the use of minors only for the purpose of ordering and picking up alcoholic liquor for service in other parts of the premises. However, the person shall not remain in the areas longer than is necessary to perform those duties.

The commission by rule may permit ac- cess to prohibited areas by any minor for nonalcoholic liquor employment purposes as long as the minor does not remain longer than is necessary to perform the duties.

During any inspection of a licensed prem- ises, the commission may require proof that a person performing work at the premises meets any applicable minimum age requirement created under this chap- ter or under commission rules. If the person does not provide the commission with acceptable proof of age upon request, the commission may require the per- son to immediately cease any activity that is subject to a minimum age requirement until the commission receives acceptable proof of age. If the activity is the sole lawful basis for the person to be present on the premises, the commission may require that the person

leave the premises. This subsection does not apply to a person temporarily at the premises to make a service, maintenance or repair call, make a delivery or for other purposes independent of the premises operations.

If a person performing work that is subject to a minimum age requirement has not provided proof of age requested by the commission under subsection (4) of this section, the commission may request that the licensee or a manager of the premis- es provide proof that the person meets any applicable minimum age requirement created under this chapter or under commission rules. Failure of the licensee

or manager to respond to a request made under this subsection by providing acceptable proof of age for a person is prima facie evidence that the licensee has allowed the person to perform work at the licensed premises in violation of a minimum age requirement. [1981 c.610 §2; 1993 c.128 §2; 1995 c.301 §70; 1999 c.351 §59; 2011 c.92 §2]

 

471.485 Payment required on or before delivery of liquor. No wholesale licensee or agent or employee thereof shall sell or deliver, nor shall any retail licensee purchase or receive any malt beverag- es, cider or wine for currency on delivery, but such malt beverages, cider or wine shall be paid for prior to delivery thereof, by electronic fund transfer initiated on or before the date of delivery, or by valid check, or- der, negotiable instrument or voucher payable on the date of delivery. The wholesale licensee may accept cash at the time of delivery if such acceptance does not create or increase the licensee’s, or the agents’

or employees’ of the licensee, exposure to or risk of being victimized by criminal activity. [1971 c.694 §2; 1995 c.525 §1; 1999 c.351 §74]

471.490 Delivery or acceptance of instru- ment drawn upon insufficient funds or not payable according to terms; use of credit. No retail licensee shall deliver any check, order, negotiable instrument or voucher in payment for malt beverages, cider or wine, knowing at the time of such delivery that the maker or drawer has not sufficient funds in the bank or depository to pay the instrument on presentation, nor shall any wholesale licensee accept any such in- strument knowing that said instrument is not payable according to its terms, or that there are not sufficient funds to pay such instrument on presentation. Any extension or acceptance of credit under this section shall constitute a violation of ORS 471.398. [1971 c.694 §3; 1995 c.301 §85; 1999 c.351 §75]

 

471.495 Report by wholesaler of instru- ments not paid on presentment required. Any wholesale licensee who receives a check, order, negotiable instrument or voucher in payment for malt beverages, cider or wine, who receives an instrument from a retail licensee which, upon presentation, is not paid by the party on whom it is drawn, shall report such fact forthwith to the Oregon Liquor Control Commission. [1971 c.694 §4; 1999 c.351 §76]

471.495. The provisions of ORS 471.485, 471.490 and 471.495 shall not apply to any common carrier licensed by the Oregon Liquor Control Commission. [1971 c.694 §5; 1995 c.301 §41]

 

471.501 Malt beverage container refunds. Nothing in this chapter prevents a brewery licensed under ORS 471.221 or a brewery-public house licensed under ORS 471.200 from establishing a refund value for malt beverage containers under the provisions of ORS 459A.705 that is in excess of five cents, or in excess of 10 cents as described in ORS 459A.705 (2), per container for the purpose of en- couraging purchasers to return the containers directly to the brewery or brewery-public house. A refund value in excess of five cents, or in excess of 10 cents as described in ORS 459A.705 (2), per container may be paid under this section only to persons who are not licensed under this chapter and who return the containers directly to the brewery or brewery-public house.

shall require a person applying for issuance or renew- al of a service permit or any license that authorizes the sale or service of alcoholic beverages for con- sumption on the premises to complete an approved alcohol server education course and examination as a condition of the issuance or renewal of the permit or license.

A person applying for issuance or renewal of a license that authorizes the sale or service of alco- holic beverages for consumption on the premises need not complete an approved alcohol server education course and examination as a condition of the issuance or renewal of the license if:

The license has been restricted by the commission to prohibit sale or service of alcoholic beverages for consumption on the premises; or

The person applying for issuance or re- newal of the license submits a sworn statement to the commission stating that the person will not engage in sale or service of alcoholic beverages for consumption on the premises, will not directly supervise or manage persons who sell or serve alcoholic beverages on the premises, and will not participate in establishing policies governing the sale or service of alcoholic beverages on the premises.

The commission by rule shall establish re- quirements that licensees and permittees must com- ply with as a condition of requalifying for a license

or permit. The licensee or permittee must comply with those requirements once every five years after completing the initial alcohol server education course and examination. The requirements established by the commission to requalify for a license may include retaking the alcohol server education course and examination. The requirements established by the commission to requalify for a service permit shall include retaking the alcohol server education course and examination.

LIABILITY FOR PROVIDING OR SERVING ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES

TO INTOXICATED PERSON OR MINOR

471.565 Liability for providing or serving alcoholic beverages to intoxicated person; notice of claim.

A patron or guest who voluntarily con- sumes alcoholic beverages served by a person li- censed by the Oregon Liquor Control Commission, a person holding a permit issued by the commission or a social host does not have a cause of action, based on statute or common law, against the person serving the alcoholic beverages, even though the alcoholic beverages are served to the patron or guest while the patron or guest is visibly intoxicated. The provisions of this subsection apply only to claims for relief based on injury, death or damages caused by intoxication and do not apply to claims for relief based on injury, death or damages caused by negligent or intentional acts other than the service of alcoholic beverages to a visibly intoxicated patron or guest.

A person licensed by the Oregon Liquor Control Commission, person holding a permit issued by the commission or social host is not liable for dam- ages caused by intoxicated patrons or guests unless the plaintiff proves by clear and convincing evidence that:

The licensee, permittee or social host served or provided alcoholic beverages to the patron or guest while the patron or guest was visibly intoxi- cated; and

The plaintiff did not substantially contrib- ute to the intoxication of the patron or guest by:

Providing or furnishing alcoholic beverag- es to the patron or guest;

Encouraging the patron or guest to con- sume or purchase alcoholic beverages or in any other manner; or

Facilitating the consumption of alcoholic beverages by the patron or guest in any manner.

Except as provided in subsection (4) of this section, an action for damages caused by intoxi- cated patrons or guests off the premises of a person licensed by the Oregon Liquor Control Commission, a person holding a permit issued by the commission or a social host may be brought only if the person asserting the claim has given the licensee, permittee or social host the notice required by subsection (5) of this section within the following time periods:

If a claim is made for damages arising out of wrongful death, notice must be given within one year after the date of death, or within one year after the date that the person asserting the claim discovers or reasonably should have discovered the existence of a claim under this section, whichever is later.

If a claim is made for damages for inju- ries other than wrongful death, notice must be given within 180 days after the injury occurs, or within 180 days after the person asserting the claim discovers or reasonably should have discovered the existence of a claim under this section, whichever is later.

The time provided for the giving of notice under subsection (3) of this section does not include any period during which:

The claimant is under 18 years of age;

The claimant is unable to give notice by reason of the injury or by reason of being financially incapable, as defined in ORS 125.005, or is incapaci- tated, as defined in ORS 125.005; or

The claimant is unable to determine that the licensee, permittee or social host is liable because the patron or guest who caused the damages asserts a right against self-incrimination and cannot be com- pelled to reveal the identity of the licensee, permittee or social host, or cannot be compelled to reveal facts that would establish the liability of the licensee, per- mittee or social host.

A licensee, permittee or social host shall be considered to have been given notice for the pur- poses of this section if:

The licensee, permittee or social host is given formal notice in the manner specified in subsec- tion (6) of this section;

The licensee, permittee or social host receives actual notice as described in subsection (7) of this section;

An action is commenced by or on behalf of the claimant within the period of time specified by subsections (3) and (4) of this section; or

Any payment on the claim is made to the claimant by or on behalf of the licensee, permittee or social host.

Formal notice of a claim subject to this section must be in writing, must be mailed to the licensee, permittee or social host, or personally served on the licensee, permittee or social host, and must contain all of the following:

A statement that a claim for damages is made against the licensee, permittee or social host.

A description of the time, place and cir- cumstances giving rise to the claim, so far as known to the claimant.

The name of the claimant and mailing address for the claimant to which correspondence regarding the claim may be mailed.

For the purposes of this section, “actual notice” means any communication to a licensee, per- mittee or social host that gives the licensee, permit- tee or social host actual knowledge of the time, place and circumstances of the claim, if the communication is such that a reasonable person would conclude that a particular person intends to assert a claim against the licensee, permittee or social host.

471.567 Liability for providing alcoholic beverages to minor; liability of minor for misrepre- sentation of age.

Notwithstanding ORS 471.130 and 471.565, no licensee, permittee or social host shall be liable to third persons injured by or through persons under the age of 21 years who obtained alcoholic beverages from the licensee, permittee or social host unless it is demonstrated that a reasonable person would have determined that identification should have been requested or that the identification exhibit- ed was altered or did not accurately describe the per- son to whom the alcoholic liquor was sold or served.

A person who is under 21 but at least 18 years of age and who through misrepresentation of age causes an Oregon Liquor Control Commission licensee to be fined or have a license suspended or revoked shall be civilly liable for damages sustained by the licensee. The court may award reasonable at- torney fees to the prevailing party in an action under this subsection.

Subsection (2) of this section does not apply to a person under the age of 21 years who is acting under the direction of the Oregon Liquor

The commission is authorized to destroy or make such other disposition

thereof as it considers to be in the public interest. In any such case, all alcoholic liquor purchased or acquired from any source, and all property, includ- ing bars, glasses, mixers, lockers, chairs, tables, cash

registers, music devices, gambling devices, furniture, furnishings, equipment and facilities for the mixing, storing, serving or drinking of alcoholic liquor shall be confiscated and forfeited to the state, and the clear proceeds shall be deposited with the State Treasury in the Common School Fund in the manner provided in this section.

§5]

 

471.615 Duty to notify commission of convic- tion of licensee. The county courts, district attorneys and municipal authorities, immediately upon the conviction of any licensee of the Oregon Liquor Con- trol Commission of a violation of any provision of the Liquor Control Act or the violation of any other law of this state or ordinance of any municipality therein, in which violation alcoholic liquor had any part, shall notify the commission thereof. Such officials shall notify the commission of any acts, practices or other

conduct of any such licensee which may be subversive of the general welfare or contrary to the spirit of the Liquor Control Act and shall recommend such action on the part of the commission as will remove the evil.

 

471.620 Property and places as common nuisances. Any room, house, building, boat, structure or place of any kind where alcoholic liquor is sold, manufactured, bartered or given away in violation of the law, or where persons are permitted to resort for the purpose of drinking alcoholic beverages in viola- tion of the law, or any place where such beverages are kept for sale, barter or gift in violation of the law, and all liquor or property subject to confiscation under ORS 471.610 kept and used in such place is a com- mon nuisance.

pants for any violation of that statute. The lien shall be enforced immediately by civil action in any court having jurisdiction, by the district attorney of the county wherein the building or premises are located.

 

471.630 Authority to abate nuisance. The Attorney General, the Oregon Liquor Control Com- mission or its administrators, or the district attorney of the county wherein a nuisance as defined in ORS 471.620 exists, or where it has existed but has tem- porarily ceased and there is good and sufficient cause to believe that it will be maintained in the future, may institute an action in the circuit court for such county in the name of the state to abate, and to temporarily and permanently enjoin, such nuisance. The court

has the right to make temporary and final orders as in other injunction proceedings. The plaintiff shall not be required to give bond in such action. [Amended by 1979 c.284 §155]

 

471.635 Issuance of restraining order.

After a suit is commenced under ORS 471.630, application for a temporary injunction may be made to the court, which shall grant a hearing thereon within 10 days. Where such application has been made, the court, on application of the plaintiff, may issue an ex parte order restraining the defen- dants and all other persons from removing or in

any manner interfering with the personal property and the contents of the room, house, building, boat, structure or place of any kind where the nuisance is alleged to exist, until the decision of the court grant- ing or refusing such temporary injunction and until the further order of the court.

This section and ORS 471.640 to 471.655 shall not interfere with the duties of officers as pro- vided in ORS 471.605 and 471.610.

 

471.640 Service of restraining order. The restraining order may be served by delivering a copy to any person in charge of such place or residing therein, or by posting a copy thereof in a conspicuous place at or upon one or more of the principal doors or entrances to such place. The officer serving the order may enter such place and forthwith shall make and re- turn to the court an inventory of the personal proper- ty and contents situated in and used in conducting or maintaining such nuisance. Any violation, of the order or mutilation or removal of the order so posted shall be a contempt of court, if the posted order contains a notice to that effect.

471.645 Temporary injunction. If a tempo- rary injunction is granted, the court may issue further restraining orders as described in ORS 471.635;

and forthwith may issue an order closing such place against its use for any purpose until the final decision, or the court may allow such place to be occupied or used during the pendency of the injunction proceed- ings by requiring the defendants to furnish an irrevo- cable letter of credit issued by an insured institution as defined in ORS 706.008 or a bond with sufficient surety, to be approved by the court, in the penal

sum of not less than $2,500, payable to the state. The bond or letter of credit shall be conditioned that alcoholic liquor will not be manufactured, possessed, sold, served, bartered, or given away, or furnished,

or otherwise disposed of thereon or therein, or kept thereon or therein with the intent to sell, barter, serve, or give away, or otherwise dispose of alcoholic liquor contrary to law, and that the defendants will pay all fines, costs and damages assessed against them for any violation of such conditions. The State of Oregon in an action brought by the Attorney General, the Oregon Liquor Control Commission or its admin- istrators, or the district attorney, may take whatever steps necessary to recover the whole amount as a penalty for the use of the county wherein the premis- es are situated. [Amended by 1991 c.331 §69; 1997 c.631 §481]

 

471.650 Nature of permanent injunction. If a judgment against the defendants is granted, the court shall order that the place constituting the nui- sance be closed for a period not exceeding two years, or closed for a part of said time, and until the owner, lessee, tenant or occupant thereof gives a bond or letter of credit identical to the bond or letter of credit required under ORS 471.645. If any condition of the bond or letter of credit is violated, the whole amount

may be recovered as a penalty for the use of the coun- ty wherein the premises are situated. In any such suit process to nonresident defendants may be served

by publication in a newspaper of general circulation in the county having jurisdiction of the injunction proceedings. Notice shall be published once each week for two consecutive weeks or for such time as the court, by order, may prescribe. [Amended by 1991 c.331 §70; 2003 c.576 §462]

 

471.655 Owner may defend; evidence con- cerning nuisance.

The owner of any property closed or restrained, or to be closed or restrained, may appear

at any time between the filing of the complaint and the trial and show cause why the court should can- cel or refrain from issuing any judgment orders as against the owner. In order to obtain such relief, the owner must prove to the satisfaction of the court that the owner is the lawful owner of the property and, further, that with reasonable care and diligence the owner could not have known of the illegal use of the owner’s property.

Evidence of the general reputation of the premises upon which a nuisance is alleged to exist is admissible in evidence for the purpose of proving the existence of the nuisance, and of knowledge of, and of acquiescence and participation therein, on the part of persons charged with maintaining or assisting in the maintenance of a nuisance. [Amended by 2003 c.576

§463]

 

471.657 Confiscation and forfeiture for violation of ORS 471.475. Upon conviction for vio- lation of ORS 471.475, the premises upon which the violation has occurred shall be declared to be a com- mon nuisance and subject to abatement proceedings as provided by ORS 471.605 to 471.655. Any person who knowingly suffers or permits such nuisance to ex- ist or be kept or maintained in a private or public club or place of which the person is the owner, manager or lessor, may be a party defendant to such abatement proceedings. In any such case, upon conviction, all alcoholic liquor, whether purchased or acquired from any other source, and all property, including bars, glasses, mixers, lockers, chairs, tables, cash registers, music devices, gambling devices, and all facilities for the mixing, storing, serving or drinking of alcoholic liquor shall be declared to be a common nuisance

and shall be subject to confiscation and forfeiture as provided for by ORS 471.610. No claim of ownership or of any right, title, or interest in or to any of the personal property enumerated in this section or ORS

471.475 shall be held valid unless claimant shows to the satisfaction of the court that claimant is in good faith the owner of the claim and had no knowledge that the personal property was used in violation of ORS 471.475.

 

471.660 Seizure of conveyance transport- ing liquor and liquor therein; notice to owner; return of conveyance; costs.

alcoholic liquor found therein, take possession of the vehicle or conveyance and arrest any person in charge thereof.

The officer shall at once proceed against the person arrested, under the Liquor Control Act, in any court having competent jurisdiction, and shall

deliver the vehicle or conveyance to the sheriff of the county in which such seizure was made.

If the person arrested is the owner of the vehicle or conveyance seized, it shall be returned to the owner upon execution by the owner of a good and valid bond, with sufficient sureties in a sum double the value of the property, approved by the court and conditioned to return the property to the custody of the sheriff at a time to be specified by the court.

If the person arrested is not the owner of the vehicle or conveyance seized, the sheriff shall make reasonable effort to determine the name and address of the owner. If the sheriff is able to deter- mine the name and address of the owner, the sheriff shall immediately notify the owner by registered or

certified mail of the seizure and of the owner’s rights and duties under this section and ORS 471.666.

A person notified under subsection (4) of this section, or any other person asserting a claim to rightful possession of the vehicle or conveyance seized, except the defendant, may move the court having ultimate trial jurisdiction over any crime charged in connection with the seizure to return the vehicle or conveyance to the movant.

The movant shall serve a copy of the mo- tion upon the district attorney of the county in which the vehicle or conveyance is in custody. The court shall order the vehicle or conveyance returned to the movant, unless the court is satisfied by clear and con- vincing evidence that the movant knowingly consent- ed to the unlawful use that resulted in the seizure. If the court does not order the return of the vehicle or conveyance, the movant shall obtain the return only as provided in subsection (3) of this section.

If the court orders the return of the ve- hicle or conveyance to the movant, the movant shall not be liable for any towing or storage costs incurred as a result of the seizure.

If the court does not order the return of the vehicle or conveyance under subsection (6) of this section, and the arrested person is convicted for any offense in connection with the seizure, the vehicle or conveyance shall be subject to forfeiture as provid-

ed in ORS 471.666. [Amended by 1973 c.836 §351; 1981 c.601 §2]

471.665 [Amended by 1971 c.743 §374a;

1973 c.836 §352; 1977 c.745 §40; 1993 c.741 §66;

The court, upon conviction of the person arrested under ORS 471.660, shall order the alcoholic liquor delivered to the Oregon Liquor Control Com- mission, and shall, subject to the ownership rights of innocent third parties, order a sale at public auction by the sheriff of the county of the property seized. The sheriff, after deducting the expense of keeping the property and the cost of sale, shall pay all the liens, according to their priorities, which are estab- lished by intervention or otherwise at such hearing

or in other proceedings brought for that purpose, and shall pay the balance of the proceeds into the general fund of the county. No claim of ownership or of any right, title or interest in or to such vehicle that is otherwise valid shall be held invalid unless the state shows to the satisfaction of the court, by clear and convincing evidence, that the claimant had

knowledge that the vehicle was used or to be used in violation of law. All liens against property sold under this section shall be transferred from the property to the proceeds of the sale.

If no person claims the vehicle or con- veyance, the taking of the same and the description thereof shall be advertised in some daily newspaper published in the city or county where taken, or if no daily newspaper is published in such city or county, in a newspaper having weekly circulation in the city or county, once a week for two weeks and by hand- bills posted in three public places near the place of seizure, and shall likewise notify by mail the legal

owner, in the case of an automobile, if licensed by the State of Oregon, as shown by the name and address in the vehicle registration records of the Department of Transportation. If no claimant appears within 10 days after the last publication of the advertisement, the property shall be sold and the proceeds, after de- ducting the expenses and costs, shall be paid into the general fund of the county.

471.680 Allegation and proof in prosecu- tions. In any prosecution for the sale of alcoholic liquor it is not necessary to prove the exact variety, or to mention the quantity of alcoholic liquor sold, except in the case where the variety or quantity is essential to establish the offense. As regards quantity it is sufficient to allege the sale of a quantity, the sale of which quantity is unlawful. The description of any offense, alleged to be a violation of the Liquor Con- trol Act, in the words of that statute or in any words of like effect, is sufficient in law. Any exceptions, exemptions, provisions, excuse or qualification may be proved by the defendant, but need not be spec- ified or negatived in the complaint, information or indictment. If it is so specified or negatived, no proof in relation to the matter so specified or negatived is

required on the part of the plaintiff, informant or com- plainant.

 

471.685 Governor authorized to suspend li- cense. In case of invasion, disaster, insurrection, riot, or imminent danger thereof, the Governor may, for the duration of such invasion, disaster, insurrection, riot, or imminent danger thereof, immediately sus- pend without notice any license in the area involved granted under the provisions of this chapter.

Prior to approving any change in officers, directors or major stockholders, the commission may require the finger- prints of the new officials.

The commission shall require that all em- ployees of the commission who work in the licensing

or enforcement divisions or who have access to crimi- nal background information be fingerprinted.

Fingerprints acquired under this section may be used for the purpose of requesting state

or nationwide criminal records checks under ORS 181A.195.

Upon receipt of the notice described in subsection (1) of this section, the commission shall cause the licensee or permittee named as the alleged provider to be notified of receipt of the notice and

of its content. A copy of the notice shall be retained in the files of the commission and shall be open to

inspection by the person injured or damaged by the motor vehicle operator or a representative of the person.

No person shall be prosecuted, punished or subjected to any penalty or forfeiture for or on account of any act, transaction, matter or thing concerning which the person shall, under oath, have, by order of the commission, or a commissioner, or any of its authorized agents, testi- fied to or produced documentary evidence of; but no person so testifying shall be exempt from prosecution or punishment for any perjury committed by the per- son in testimony.

Whenever the commission determines that moneys have been received by it in excess of the amount legally due and payable to the commission

or that it has received money to which it has no legal interest, or that any license fee or deposit is properly refundable, the commission is authorized and direct- ed to refund such money by check drawn upon the State Treasurer and charged to the suspense account of the commission. After withholding refundable license fees and such sum, not to exceed $250,000, as it considers necessary as a revolving fund for a working cash balance for the purpose of paying travel expenses, advances, other miscellaneous bills and ex- traordinary items which are payable in cash immedi- ately upon presentation, the commission shall direct the State Treasurer to transfer the money remaining in the suspense account to the Oregon Liquor Control Commission Account in the General Fund.

of the commission by law, including the salaries of its employees, purchases made by the commission and such sums necessary to reimburse the $250,000 revolving fund, shall be audited and paid from the Oregon Liquor Control Commission Account in the General Fund, upon warrants drawn by the Oregon Department of Administrative Services, pursuant to claims duly approved by the commission.

Moneys from the retail sale of distilled liquor that are being held by an agent appointed un- der ORS 471.750 or by a distillery retail outlet agent appointed under ORS 471.230 are not subject to ORS

295.001 to 295.108 if the agent has on deposit with the commission an amount equaling or exceeding an amount the commission, in its discretion, deems to be reasonable and sufficient and to be not less than the average daily gross receipts from retail sales of distilled liquor by the agent. The commission shall remit moneys deposited with the commission under this subsection to the State Treasurer for deposit to a separate reserve account of the commission. Moneys in the reserve account are not revenue of the commis- sion for purposes of ORS 221.770. The commission shall return the deposit, and any interest earned on the deposit, if the appointment of the agent termi- nates and the agent has forwarded to the commission all moneys owed the commission from retail sales of distilled liquor by the agent.

Alcoholism and Drug Services Account in the General Fund to be paid monthly as provided in ORS 430.380.

If the amount of revenues received from the taxes imposed by ORS 473.030 for the preceding month was reduced as a result of credits claimed un- der ORS 473.047, the commission shall compute the difference between the amounts paid or transferred as described in subsections (1)(b), (c) and (d) and

of this section and the amounts that would have been paid or transferred under subsections (1)(b), (c) and (d) and (2) of this section if no credits had been claimed.

Any additional funds required to maintain the level of distribution under this subsection shall be paid from funds credited under subsection (1)(a) of this section.

Notwithstanding subsection (1) of this section, amounts to be distributed from the Oregon

Liquor Control Commission Account that are attribut- able to a per bottle surcharge imposed by the Oregon Liquor Control Commission, shall be credited to the General Fund. [Amended by 1955 c.475 §11; 1957 c.222 §1; 1957 c.445 §1; 1961 c.78 §1; 1961 c.635

Oregon State University (OSU) has developed and implemented drug and alcohol abuse education and prevention programming designed to prevent the unlawful possession, use, and distribution of drugs and alcohol on campus and at campus events. OSU is required to distribute written information about its DAAPP, as well as conduct a biennial review to measure its effectiveness and ensure a consistent enforcement of its disciplinary sanctions.

As a part of its activities, OSU distributes and has available written materials that include the following:

  • Standards of conduct that prohibit the unlawful possession, use or distribution of illicit drugs and alcohol on University property or part of our activities
  • A description of the health risks associated with the use of illicit drugs and abuse of alcohol
  • Federal, state and local laws with applicable legal sanctions
  • Information regarding counseling and treatment programs
  • A list of prevention and education programming offered
  • Specific information regarding disciplinary sanctions OSU will impose on students and employees who violate standards of conduct

The process of conducting a biennial review provides OSU with an opportunity to examine the reach and impact of our alcohol and drug prevention efforts. Through this review, we will acknowledge our achievements and most importantly, we will identify areas that need improvement. The spirit of improvement is our primary goal, as we are aware of the serious negative impacts alcohol and other drug abuse has on our campus community.

  1. Specifically, OSU undertakes a biennial review to internally evaluate its alcohol and drug abuse prevention programming in the following areas:
  2. Determine program effectiveness and implement programmatic changes as needed;
  3. Determine the number of drug- and alcohol-related violations that occur on the institution’s campus or as part of any of the institution’s activities;
  4. Determine the number and type of sanctions that are imposed by the institution as a result of drug- and alcohol-related violations on the institution’s campus or as a part of any of the institution’s activities; and
  5. Ensure that the sanctions are consistently enforced.

2. Alcohol and Other Drug (AOD) Prevalence Rate, Incidence Rate, and Trend Data

A. AOD-related Incidents.

There are several AOD-related incidents occurring in and around the OSU campus. [Data on the number of incidents is housed in the Office of Student Life, Student Conduct and Community Standards (SCCS)]. A summary of incidents is detailed below.

 

AY 2016 - 2017

AY 2017 - 2018

1. On-campus alcohol-related incidents reported to the Office of Student Life/SCCS 685 878
2. On-Campus drug-related incidents reported to the Office of Student Life/SCCS 228 326
3. Alcohol-related student conduct violations managed by the Office of Student Life/SCCS and University Housing 300 518

4. Drug-related student conduct violations man- aged by the Office of Student Life/SCCS and University Housing

129 124

Note: Information reported only applies to students under university jurisdiction. When comparing these years, it is vital to report that the Code of Student Conduct (“code-level”) was updated during this time and changed what incidents were being referred and what behavior was a policy violation.

Definitions:
  1. On-campus alcohol related reports
    • Case was adjudicated
    • Student was alleged of violating a code-level alcohol violation
    • Incident occurred on campus
  2. On-campus drug related reports
    • Case was adjudicated
    • Student was alleged of violating a code-level marijuana or drug violation
    • Incident occurred on campus
  3. Alcohol-related student conduct violations
    • Case was adjudicated 
    • Student was found responsible for a code-level alcohol violation or off-campus violations of MIP, Open Container, or Hosting violations
  4. Drug-related student conduct violations
    • Case was adjudicated
    • Student was found responsible for code-level marijuana, drug, or off-campus Driving-Related Incidents, which were drug related.

Only unique cases are reported in this data (i.e. if the student violated multiple alcohol sub-policies at the same time, they are only counted once). Although, if the individual violated alcohol and drug policies at one time, they are included in all data sets above.

Consider that 2016-2017 data included MIP, Open Container, Hosting, and Driving-Related Incidents (that specifically included alcohol or drug concerns) in numbers 3 and 4 (above). These were included to represent code-level violations for off-campus incidents, based on old jurisdictional limits.

If the location was listed as unknown, we did not include these cases in the on-cam-pus statistics (1 & 2, above). In 2016, there are two unknown location cases related to alcohol. In 2017, there is one unknown location case related to alcohol. There are no unknown location cases regarding drugs.

B. Assessment Data.

Assessment data is available for the OSU population from sourc- es including the National College Health Assessment (NCHA), as well as annual data for incoming students completing AlcoholEdu. OSU has utilized the NCHA survey as the main assessment tool (administered every two years, beginning in 2000). NCHA data allows us to observe trends over time on the OSU campus as well as compare to national standards.

NCHA Data

OSU 2016

OSU 2018

Total percentage of students who reported never using alcohol 20.3% 17.4%
Total percentage of students who reported using alcohol within the last 30 days 65.5% 69.7%
Total percentage of students who reported consuming five or more drinks in a sitting (one or more times) within the last two weeks 32.1% 27.4%

Total percentage of students who reported never using marijuana

52.7% 47.6%
Total percentage of students who reported using marijuana in the last 30 days 28.0% 29.9%

As shown, the number of students surveyed who have never used alcohol has fallen in recent years and our percentage of high-risk drinking is also down. However, the total percentage of students who reported consuming alcohol or marijuana in the past 30 days has increased.

The AlcoholEdu data highlights results from all incoming students and was administered pre-matriculation and approximately six weeks post-matriculation.

AlcoholEdu Data

AlcoholEdu:

Six weeks post-matriculation AY 2016-17

AlcoholEdu:

Six weeks post-matriculation AY 2017-18

Consumed alcohol Past year: 67% Past year: 66%
High-risk alcohol use (> 5 drinks within two-hour period) Past 2 weeks: 57% Past 2 weeks: 60%
Marijuana use Past 2 weeks:16% Past 2 weeks:16%
Non-prescription use of stimulants Past 2 weeks: 0.49% Past 2 weeks: 0.57%
Illegal drug use (excluding marijuana) Past 2 weeks: 6.2% Past 2 weeks: 6.4%
Prescription opioid use Past 2 weeks: 0.61% Past 2 weeks: 0.7%

Campus level data on drug and alcohol consumption and alcohol and drug use disorders among employees is not available. It should be noted, however, that the state of Oregon faces significant challenges related to drug and alcohol use among its population (both adults and youth).

A summary of substance use disorders in Oregon from 2017 included the following data:

  • In 2014, the Oregon Health Authority reported that 4.7 percent of Oregonians engaged in illegal use of opioids, the fourth highest rate in the country.
  • In 2014, approximately 7 percent of Oregonians were dependent on or abused alcohol, slightly higher than the national average of 6.5 percent.
  • In 2014, 16.5 percent of Oregon teens reported binge drinking alcohol, compared to 14 percent nationally.
  • Oregonians suffer more from substance use disorder than the national average. Almost one of every 10 adults in Oregon depends upon or abuses illicit drugs or alcohol, as well as one of every 15 Oregon youth.

Programs & Interventions

The following includes programming and interventions to support alcohol and drug prevention for students on campus.

A. Individual Level Programs and Interventions
IMPACT.

An evidenced-based program designed to engage students in meaningful discussion about alcohol and marijuana use.

IMPACT was developed utilizing components of the Brief Alcohol Screening and Intervention for College Students (BASICS) and Alcohol Skills Training Program (ASTP). The educational programming is provided by Student Health Services with coordination support from Student Conduct and Community Standards and University Housing and Dining Services.

Referrals to the program come from multiple sources, including both on- and off-campus agencies. On-campus students are typically referred from University Housing and Dining Services or the Office of Student Conduct and Community Standards. Off-campus students are referred from Corvallis Mu- nicipal Court, Benton County Circuit Court, and occasionally other municipal courts from around the state. Students are most often referred to the program due to an alcohol or marijuana-related violation. The courts recognize IMPACT as a diversion program for eligible Oregon State students. Students may also self-refer to the program. The program fee is waived for self-referrals.

Based on specific information about their marijuana or alcohol usage, students are screened into a particular intervention (either two 90-minute group ses- sions for alcohol education, one 90-minute group session for marijuana education, or a 1:1 appointment with a Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselor). Upon completion of the IMPACT program, students have a foundational understanding of:

  1. Alcohol or marijuana and the effects of each on the body,
  2. Myths and realities associated with substance induced effects,
  3. Skills to limit the negative ramifications of underage and excessive alcohol use or other substance use.

Overall, the IMPACT program is guided by the mission of Oregon State University and is committed to stimulate a lasting attitude of inquiry, openness, and social responsibility. IMPACT is periodically revised to reflect student needs and available resources.

e-CHUG.

e-CHUG is a brief, anonymous, online assessment tool. This individual assessment takes approximately 10 minutes to complete and helps students understand their use of alcohol.

e-TOKE.

e-TOKE is a brief, interactive marijuana-specific assessment and feedback tool that provides individual insight into marijuana use, utilizing personalized information about students’ behaviors and risk factors. The anonymous, self-guided assessment takes approximately 10-15 minutes to complete.

Referral Programs to Off-Campus Treatment Providers for Students.

Student Health Services and Counseling and Psychological Services utilize trained individuals who are available to assist students requiring treatment referral.

Individual Assessment for Employees.

The Employee Assistance Program (EAP) has counselors who meet one-on- one with employees to provide counseling for many areas including alcohol or drug use. Employees initiate contact on their own or EAP may be suggested as a result of a sanction or disciplinary action. Employees can identify drug and alcohol abuse as a presenting concern, or the counselor may determine through the assessment process that a substance abuse issue exists. The counselor can make recommendations for referral to a treatment provider or other community resource for more long term support.

Referral Programs to Off-Campus Treatment Providers for Employees.

As stated above, EAP counselors may make referrals to treatment centers or other more long term support options based on employee needs.

B. Institutional Level Programs and Interventions
Educational Workshops.

Educational workshops are the cornerstone of early intervention practices at Oregon State. Multiple departments and offices engage in workshop activities that are instrumental in reducing the burden of excessive and underage alcohol and substance use. “Up2u” is an education-based prevention effort focusing on the reduction of high-risk alcohol use. Up2u is a voluntary program, and presentations are available upon request by students, faculty, staff, coaches, residence halls and student organizations. Students can also meet with Up2u staff to ask questions or receive more information.

AlcoholEdu.

AlcoholEdu is a comprehensive online education program designed to provide students with the information they need to make informed decisions about alcohol, link their choices about drinking to academic and personal success, and help cope with the drinking behavior of peers, as well as respond effectively in situations where others are at risk of alcohol-related harm.

AlcoholEdu has been a mandatory requirement for all incoming first-year OSU students since the fall of 2014. We believe the implementation of AlcoholEdu on OSU’s campus continues to help us:

  1. Decrease high-risk drinking during critical times, especially the first 8 weeks of the fall term.
  2. Increase basic knowledge of alcohol.
  3. Track and monitor students’ alcohol use.
  4. Decrease alcohol-related disruptions in residence halls.
  5. Change culture and expectations around alcohol use.
Collegiate Recovery Community and the Recovery Living Community.

The Collegiate Recovery Community (CRC) opened its doors in fall of 2013 to offer support for students in recovery from drug or alcohol use. Before its creation, there was a need for recovery support on the OSU campus. In addition to the CRC, OSU opened the Recovery Living Community (RLC) in the fall of 2016. The RLC is located in Dixon Lodge and is Oregon State University’s first building dedicated to collegiate recovery support.

Dixon Lodge is now home to both the CRC and RLC. Students participating in either the CRC or RLC are offered various events and programs including weekly check-in meetings, recovery birthday parties, team-building opportunities, movie nights and sober tailgating on home football game days. Dixon Lodge also offers meeting space for 12-step meetings, which are open to the community when at least one CRC member is present.

C. Community and Environmental-level Programs and Interventions
Late Night Programs (substance-free social options).

Throughout the academic year, OSU provides students with substance-free social options. These activities are supported by Student Leadership & Involvement and include a variety of engaging events such as AMC Movie Night, After Dark, Haunted Memorial Union, OSU Foam Party, and much more.

Medical Amnesty Law.

In order to remove barriers and reduce the number of alcohol poisoning-related deaths, Oregon State University put forth great effort to help pass the Medical Amnesty Law. Since January 1, 2015, this law protects minors in the state of Oregon from being charged with underage possession when calling 911 for someone they think has alcohol poisoning. This law also applies to any minor in need of medical attention.

OSU Prevention and Advocacy Coalition.

The Prevention and Advocacy Coalition was formed in 2016 to ensure strategic and coordinated campus-wide efforts related to alcohol and drug prevention, violence prevention, hazing prevention and advocacy and the broad use of evidence-informed best practices. The Coalition employs a multi-unit stakeholder approach to reach across the campus and within the community. The Coalition’s charge is to:

  1. Develop specific goals, with implementation timelines and measures of success, to realize a vision of an OSU culture characterized by:
    • Respectful interactions and relationships, free of sexual assault and other forms of harassment and violence
    • Safe and healthy attitudes, decision-making, and behaviors related to alcohol and other drugs
  2. Develop evidence-based strategies and implementation plans to achieve the identified goals, with proposed:
    • Roles and responsibilities
    • Milestones
    • Timelines
  3. Identify and employ measures to assess progress toward achievement of goals
  4. Report periodically to senior administration and the broader campus community on priority projects and milestones toward accomplishing Coalition goals

4. Goals and Recommendations for the Next Biennium

A. Central Goal
  • Increase efforts to address high-risk consumption in all student populations.
B. Individual Strategies (Goals for 2020 Biennium)
  • Ongoing improvements to the IMPACT program and continue to expand the consistent use of IMPACT for all student alcohol and marijuana violations and citations.
  • Identify improved collection/documentation methods for employee AOD violations and sanctions.
  • Expand access to clinical services related to substance use disorders.
C. Institutional Strategies (Goals for 2020 Biennium)
  • Continue to promote and support the growth of the Collegiate Recovery Community and the Recovery Living Community, including on-boarding new professional staff position.
  • Launch a comprehensive AOD social marketing campaign.
  • Conduct an institutional review of all campus units serving alcohol on a periodic basis.
D. Community/Environmental Strategies (Goals for 2020 Biennium)
  • Utilize OSU Prevention and Advocacy Coalition as thought partners, creators, and editors of the annual and biennial reviews.
  • Maintain collaboration with Benton County and Corvallis Police Department on awareness and educational opportunities for students.

5. Conclusion

Oregon State University is committed to the process of continuous improvement. We look forward to the opportunity to focus on our goals and recommendations for the next biennium. These goals will form the basis for continued campus efforts and additional strategic planning.
