Policies and Procedures for Events with Alcohol

Ringling College considers the abuse of alcohol by its faculty, staff and students to be unsafe and counter-productive to the educational process and the work environment. We do not encourage the presence and use of alcohol at College-sponsored events. The College may, however, permit the legal purchase and use of alcoholic beverages at College-related events that are properly organized and scheduled only when the event will not interfere with scheduled academic activities or the normal operations of the College. If such a program will involve students, permission to provide service must be acquired from the Vice-President for Student Life and Dean of Students (and the Vice-President for Academic Affairs in cases where a faculty member is the sponsor).
