Responsible Action Protocol

Students who assist others in an emergency generally face no disciplinary action for their own infractions - even if alcohol or other drugs are involved. Just remember to:

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

The purpose of the Responsible Action Protocol (RAP) 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.
