and public community. This Policy implements the University
of New Hampshire’s goals of protecting the health and welfare
of the student-athlete, promoting the integrity of intercollegiate

Drug and alcohol misuse can create serious social and health problems for the student-athlete. It is vital that student-athletes learn how the abuse of drugs or alcohol can be a severe detriment to their general health as well as athletic performance. Evidence of use of banned substances as specified by the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA), including performance enhancing drugs, may result in a student-athlete's eligibility being negatively affected by the NCAA. This not only penalizes the student-athlete and their team, but also reflects negatively on the University of New Hampshire community.
The University of New Hampshire promotes a healthy lifestyle and competitive environment by creating an opportunity to learn about the effects of certain drugs and to participate in a drug free environment. The implementation of drug education, drug-screening, and drug counseling programs serve the University's goal of educating and protecting the health and well being of each student-athlete.
