Pursuant to recent changes by Congress intended to address the problem of alcohol and drug abuse at colleges and universities, the University also has the discretion to disclose to any parent or legal guardian of a student, who is under the age of 21, information about a violation of any federal, state or local law, or any rule or policy of the institution governing the use or possession of alcohol or a controlled substance, if the institution determines that the student has committed a disciplinary violation with respect to such use or possession.
