Campus Alcohol Education Enforcement Plan

The University of Wisconsin-Stout will strive to create and support an environment where use of alcohol does not prevent students from realizing their highest potential of intellectual, physical and human development. The University will use evidence based policies, programs, and services and will assess progress through measurable goals and objectives.

Campus Alcohol Education & Enforcement Plan Worksheet

According to the National Institute of Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, research demonstrates that close collaboration between colleges and their surrounding communities, including zero tolerance enforcement of the law, reduces the incidents of high-risk drinking and associated negative consequences.

Using a comprehensive management system, UW-Stout has information on all conduct violations and concerning behavior for all enrolled students. This allows University Housing and the Dean of Students office to collaboratively track conduct incidents for each student and to ensure the sanctions imposed reflect not only the recent behavior but also past behavior.

Behavior outside the residence halls (students residing in the residence halls are subject to residence hall policy for conduct occurring in the halls) and off campus which violates UW System Administrative Code Ch. 17 or 18 (see Student Rights & Responsibilities) and/or results in citation by city, university, or county law enforcement officers, will be addressed by university judicial officials when, in the judgment of the investigating officer, the alleged conduct is any of the following:

  • Dangerous conduct
  • Forgery or falsification  
  • Illegal use or distribution of alcoholic beverages  
  • Violation of criminal law  
  • Unauthorized use or property damage  
  • Serious or repeated violations of municipal law  
  • Disruption of university authorized activities  
  • Violation of university rules  

Some examples of these behaviors include:

  • Underage Alcohol Consumption Citations
  • Using a false ID
  • Furnishing to minors  
  • Selling without a license  
  • Vandalism  
  • Driving Under the Influence  
  • Disorderly conduct  
  • Battery

The University also has the authority to contact parents in any situations involving alcohol. UW-Stout will notify parents on all 2nd alcohol violations regardless of the nature of the violation.

Depending on the frequency or severity of the behavior, the university can impose sanctions that prevent a student from being enrolled at the university.
