Alcohol Enforcement

Stanislaus State, along with the rest of the nation's colleges and universities, is very concerned, about the irresponsible and potentially dangerous use of alcohol by its students, particularly those under 21 years of age. We know that irresponsible and/or illegal use of alcohol often creates academic, social, physical, emotional, and legal problems for our students that prevent them from being successful at the university and beyond. As an institution, we are committed to working with community partners to prevent these problems and to keep our students, and the community, safe.

Prevention Efforts

Students Managing Alcohol Responsibly Together is an annual event sponsored by the UPD and Housing to raise awareness of alcohol related problems and prevention efforts at Stanislaus State.  

UPD Officers participate in National Collegiate Alcohol Awareness events that take place on campus every year in November to raise awareness of alcohol related problems and prevention efforts at Stanislaus State.

The UPD is part of a Stanislaus County joint Law Enforcement task force that specially addresses alcohol related problems through DUI checkpoints, strike teams and educational events.

The UPD is annually awarded special recognition for excellence in DUI enforcement and alcohol related accident prevention efforts
