Alcohol Identity Statement

As an evangelical Christian community of disciples and scholars, Azusa Pacific University seeks to model Christlike behavior regarding the responsible and legal use of alcohol. We seek to cultivate a community in which members exercise freedom, responsibility, and discretion in responsiveness to the Holy Spirit. This is demonstrated by all members of the Board of Trustees, administration, faculty, staff, and students aligning their actions and behaviors with university policies on alcohol. This identity statement reflects APU’s commitment to creating a God-honoring environment that is safe and healthy for all community members. Read more about What We Believe.
