Top 50 Schools for Drug and Alcohol Disciplinary Actions

Posted by Joseph D. Lento | Feb 09, 2016 | 0 Comments

Schools vary as to how they handle drug and alcohol violations.  Whereas some are more willing to give students a second chance, others take a harsher stance towards students who violate the school's drug and alcohol policy.  A federal statute signed into law in 1990 requires colleges and universities that receive federal funding to report campus crime statistics and also their efforts to improve campus safety.  This law is known as the Jeanne Clery Act, and due to the Clery Act, statistics are available regarding campus drug and alcohol violations.  The most recent statistics available were analyzed, and the following two charts were created based on the results.  The first chart lists the top 50 colleges and universities that take the most disciplinary action against students for campus drug and alcohol violations, and the second chart lists the top 5 colleges and universities with the largest increase in disciplinary actions against students for campus drug and alcohol violations:

New Jersey and Pennsylvania schools that make the lists are as follows:

Drug Disciplinary Actions: # 23 - St. Joseph's University; # 27 - The College of New Jersey (TCNJ); and # 44 - University of Pennsylvania

Alcohol Disciplinary Actions: # 5 - St. Joseph's University; # 19 - Villanova University; # 36 - Ramapo College of New Jersey; # 40 - York College of Pennsylvania, and # 48 - Lehigh University
