The following describes the Act's provisions. 

As a part of its drug prevention program for students and employees, Seton Hall University annually distributes the following information to students and employees:

  • a description of applicable local, state or federal legal sanctions pertaining to the unlawful possession, use or distribution of illicit drugs and alcohol;
