Other University Protocol, Conditions, and Regulations
In addition to the Code and the applicable Standard Operating Procedures outlined by the Office of Student Accountability and Conflict Response, further information on University protocol, policies, terms and conditions, and regulations can be found in the following areas:
A student who acts responsibly by notifying the appropriate authorities (e.g. calling 911, alerting a resident assistant, contacting police) AND meets one or more of the following criteria typically will not face University conduct action for their own use or possession of alcohol or drugs. However, the student will be required to attend an approved alcohol or drug education program, such as BASICS or the Marijuana Intervention Program (MIP); the fee will be waived. When the student's behavior involves other Code of Conduct violations (e.g., vandalism, assault, furnishing to minors) the additional behavior may be subject to conduct action. If a student exhibits a pattern of problematic behavior with alcohol or drugs, that student may be subject to formal conduct action. The criteria which invoke the Protocol are:
- Students seeking medical assistance for themselves when experiencing an alcohol or drug overdose or related problems.
- A student seeks medical assistance for a peer suffering from an alcohol or drug overdose or related problems and remains with the peer until appropriate authorities arrive.
- A student suffering from an alcohol or drug overdose or related problems, for whom another student seeks assistance, and where that individual believes they are the first caller, provides their name and remains with the peer until appropriate authorities arrive, will also not be subject to conduct action for alcohol violations.
