  • Audrey Wollen is a feminist theorist and visual artist based in Los Angeles. Wollen uses social media, such as Twitter and Instagram, as platforms for her work on Sad Girl Theory, a theory which posits that internalized female sadness can be used as a radical and political action, separate from masculinized forms of protests such as anger and violence. She introduces this form of protest as an alternative to masculinized anger and violence.

Drug Free Schools Act

Drug and Alcohol Prevention Program

This law requires institutions receiving federal financial assistance to establish drug and alcohol abuse prevention programs for students and employees. Students and employees must receive materials annually that contain standards of conduct, a description of the various laws that apply in that jurisdiction regarding alcohol and drugs, a description of the various health risks of drug and alcohol abuse, a description of counseling and treatment programs that are available, and a statement on the sanctions the university will impose for a violation of the standards of conduct.

Biennial Review

The law also requires a biennial review of the program. Effective August 14, 2008, pursuant to amendments in the HEOA, any biennial review must include a determination of the number of drug and alcohol-related violations and fatalities that occur on the institution's campus or as part of the institution's activities and the number and type of sanctions imposed by the institution as a result of drug and alcohol-related violations and fatalities that occur on the institution's campus or as part of the institution's activities.

Campus is defined in the same manner as it is defined for campus safety reporting purposes, i.e. any building or property owned or controlled by the institution within a reasonably contiguous geographic area used in direct support of the institution's educational purposes or used by students and supporting institutional purposes. Per the Higher Education Center for Alcohol and Other Drug Abuse practice has been that campuses conduct a biennial review by the end of each even numbered calendar year. The school should keep the biennial review on file in case of a possible audit. Schools are not required to send their review to the Dept. of Education.
