Amnesty through Responsible Action

Students who assist others in an emergency and those in need of assistance generally face no disciplinary action for their own infractions - even if alcohol or other drugs are involved.

To be eligible for Amnesty through Responsible Action you must:

  • CALL: Call 911
  • STAY: Stay with the person needing assistance
  • COOPERATE: Cooperate with emergency & university officials

The purpose of Amnesty through Responsible Action is to encourage you to seek appropriate help in emergency situations, particularly those involving alcohol or other drugs.

Deciding whether to call 911 is not always easy. Even if you're not sure, we urge you to err on the side of caution and make the call.
