Campus Policies and Guidelines to Assist Students Who Abuse Alcohol

Introduction 
Each member of our community has a personal responsibility to provide the most immediate support for our students who abuse alcohol. This responsibility comes in many forms-by providing personal support and understanding, by facilitating a referral, by reacting appropriately in the face of an emergency, and through other ways demonstrative of a caring and professional campus community.

These general guidelines provide helpful information for response to alcohol emergencies such as an unconscious student or a student with symptoms of alcohol poisoning. Also included is information that addresses working with minors, confronting a student who is intoxicated, and other significant situations that you might encounter.

These guidelines are intended to serve as a reference as each campus formulates and develops individual campus procedures in coordination health, law enforcement, and legal departments. A special Reference section (p. 6) allows readers a quick view of special sections of the CSU Alcohol Policy.
