Message from the Chancellor
Cheryl B. Schrader
Dear Missouri S&T Family Member:
Missouri University of Science and Technology places a high priority on the health and safety of students. We are committed to providing an inclusive, vibrant and sustainable campus community where student learning and development flourish. Aligned with this commitment is the Parental Notification of Alcohol and Controlled Substances Violations policy, which allows for increased collaboration with parent(s) or legal guardian(s) regarding issues pertaining to student use of alcohol or controlled substances.
We believe students benefit from discussions with their parent(s) or legal guardian(s) about the impact of alcohol and/or controlled substance use. The effects of alcohol consumption are more significant, more destructive and more costly than many realize. Alcohol can impact the student experience whether or not a student chooses to drink. Effects include risky sexual choices, violence and vandalism, alcohol poisoning or even death.
As our partner, we encourage you to review, discuss and complete the Parental Notification Module with your son or daughter. This module contains valuable information related to the impact alcohol can have on student success.
Finally, please encourage your student to complete the eCHECKUP TO GO module, which will be distributed to his or her University e-mail account later this month, to reinforce making informed choices and to become familiar with available resources related to alcohol.
Cheryl B. Schrader, Ph.D.
