Good Samaritan Policy
Students or organizations that seek emergency attention for dangerously intoxicated or overdosed individuals will not be subject to college disciplinary action. This policy applies both to the person requiring help and the person or organization reporting their concern.
Our community benefits when we encourage people to seek help for those most vulnerable or at risk who otherwise might not receive help.
When students encounter another who may be dangerously intoxicated, overdosed or ill, they should call Campus Safety immediately at 802-287-8911.
Campus Security and Residence Life staff will record names of intoxicated or overdosed student to ensure the students well-being.
In order for this policy to apply, the intoxicated student(s) must agree to timely completion of recommended alcohol or other drug educational activities, assessment, and/or treatment depending on the level of concern for student health and safety.
