How did the MAP originate? The MAP was proposed by two student groups: SSDP (Students for a Sensible Drug Policy) and the SGA (Student Government Association). Meetings were held during 2009-10 involving students, staff, and administrators. In May, 2010, the MAP was approved and endorsed by the SGA, the President’s Council, and the Board of Trustees as a pilot program. The impact of the MAP will be periodically evaluated to determine whether it should become a permanent Ithaca College policy.

What is the purpose of the MAP? A survey at IC found that some students are reluctant to seek help in alcohol or drug-related emergencies because of fear of college judicial consequences. Since alcohol or drug overdose, poisoning, and misuse are potentially fatal, it is essential that medical assistance be called immediately if a concern exists.The purpose of the MAP is to reduce harm, and ultimately save lives, by encouraging students to seek assistance for their friends and themselves when a medical emergency arises due to the use of alcohol or other drugs.
