When the health and safety of a fellow Buff are at risk, calling for help is always the right thing to do. Under the Amnesty Policy, calling for help in an alcohol- or drug-related emergency means neither the person who calls for help nor the person who needs help will be subject to formal disciplinary sanctions by the university.
What is the Amnesty Policy?
Alcohol- or Drug-related Emergency
Whenever a student assists an intoxicated individual in procuring the appropriate assistance as determined by SCCR, neither the intoxicated individual nor the individual(s) who assists will be subject to the formal resolution process with respect to the alcohol, drug, or infectious disease policy. Educational outcomes may still be assigned.
Public Health Orders
Whenever a student calls for appropriate assistance in ending large social gatherings in their homes, neither the individual who called for assistance nor other tenants who are present or on the lease will be subject to the formal resolution process with respect to the violation of law or infectious disease policy violation pertaining to the gathering. Resolution of the incident under the Amnesty Policy is contingent upon all tenants at the address completing a restorative justice process with SCCR.
