The Mount Holyoke Policy on Alcohol and Drug-Free Environment
The Mount Holyoke Policy on Alcohol and Drug-Free Environment prohibits the unlawful manufacture, possession, use, dispensation, or distribution of alcohol and illicit drugs by any member of the faculty, staff, or student body on College property or at any College-sponsored function, on or off campus. Any faculty or staff member or student who violates this policy faces disciplinary action up to and including expulsion or dismissal from the College and/or may be required to enroll in a substance-abuse counseling and/or treatment program at his or her own expense, as a condition of continuing employment or enrollment at the College. Anyone violating federal, state, or local laws relating to alcohol or drug use also risks fines and imprisonment. Individuals may obtain information packets, including the complete policy statement and disciplinary sanctions, a summary of local, state, and federal drug enforcement laws, a reference guide on the uses and effects of alcohol and other drugs, and a resource guide to area facilities offering counseling services. The packets are available from the dean of faculty’s office, the health center, the human resources department, and the Alcohol and Drug Awareness Project. Copies are also on reserve at the library. Specific rules and regulations governing alcohol consumption and violations of College policies are outlined in the Student Handbook, staff handbook, and the handbook of faculty legislation.

The Clio-Melpomene Prize

The Clio-Melpomene Prize of $2,500 will be awarded to assist aspiring poets and/or historians after graduation. Applicants must be graduating seniors. There are no GPA or citizenship restrictions. The work need not be completed for a course, independent study, or major. Peter Viereck, Professor Emeritus of History and winner of the Pulitzer Prize for poetry, has endowed this annual prize for “a young woman who follows her private star in poetic style or historical interpretation.” Application materials are due Monday, May 5, by 5 pm in the Career Development Center. Applicants should submit a sample of work in poetry and/or history. The sample should be large enough to fully represent the applicant’s work. Also required is a short (one- to three-page) personal statement, addressing the work, aspirations for continued work in the field, plans after graduation, and any other information that is relevant to the applicant’s work and future plans. There is no application form. Optional are one or two recommendations from faculty or other mentors who know the work well. The judging committee is made up of members of the English and history departments. Viereck does not sit on the committee. The prize winner will be announced shortly before commencement. Questions? Contact Katya King at the CDC (x2080).
