Amnesty for Medical Emergencies | Spalding University Student Handbook

Amnesty for Medical Emergencies

Students who require medical attention related to extreme intoxication, potential alcohol poisoning or drug overdose are offered medical amnesty from judicial processes related to alcohol or drugs through the Good Samaritan Consideration policy (section 15 below). The same consideration extends to those individuals caring for the student by seeking assistance from RA’s, Res Hall Directors, Counselors, Campus Safety, Police, EMTS or other University or Emergency professionals. The purpose of this policy is explicitly to encourage students to seek help for himself or herself or a peer if needed. All students may still be required to meet with the Dean of Students or a counselor following such an incident but formal charges may be waived.
