Alcohol and Other Drug Sanctions

Typically students will receive one or a combination of the following sanctions for violation of the Alcohol and Other Drug policies. Depending on the severity of a violation or if other types of violations occurred in addition to an alcohol and other drug violation, additional sanctions may also be applied from any of the sanction sections.

AOD Discussion Circle 
AOD Discussion Circles are used to provide an opportunity for students to engage with peers who may have also violated the AOD policy and to have a discussion with a trained facilitator about how their decisions related to alcohol or other drug use or other similar experiences impact them and their communities. 

BASICS is a non-judgmental, non-moralistic harm reduction approach to understanding the role of alcohol and drugs in one's life.  It is composed of two individual sessions and is a great way for students to learn more about their relationship with substances.  When assigned as a requirement to earn Alcohol and Other Drug Amnesty, BASICS is not a part of the student's conduct record.

Brief Intervention
A Brief Intervention is a conversation with a trained student life staff member to discuss alcohol and other drug use and its impact on the individual. When required to earn Alcohol and Other Drug Amnesty, a Brief Intervention is not a part of the student's conduct record.

AOD Impact Interview
Students assigned an AOD impact interview will be required to interview others and write a reflection based on their personal reflection related to alcohol or other drug use and the reflection of others. An administrator or board will specify length and other parameters of the assignment.
