Drug and Alcohol Policy
The University of Michigan requires a drug- and alcohol-free workplace and study environment. This policy applies to NELP, even though many NELPers are of legal drinking age.
NELP has additional reasons for enforcing this policy: Swimming, boating, and hiking can be dangerous, and it is crucial that participants not have impaired judgment or impaired physical abilities. NELP and our host camp could both be seriously damaged by incidents that involve the use of drugs or alcohol. Further, drug or alcohol use creates divisions in our small community.
If you cannot support this policy, do not apply to NELP.
