IC MAP: SAVE A LIFE — MAKE THE CALL!
The IC Medical Amnesty Policy (IC MAP) was created to encourage students to call for help in alcohol or drug-related emergencies without fear of college conduct consequences. In MAP cases, the student who receives medical assistance and the student who summons help are not sanctioned through the college conduct system. Completion of the BASICS Education Program is required. All students are expected to read and abide by the full IC MAP policy, available at: www.ithaca.edu/sacl/healthpromotion/icmap
SANCTION & INTERVENTION PROTOCOL FOR ALCOHOL AND MARIJUANA VIOLATIONS
This protocol is intended as a guideline for conduct decisions regarding minimum sanctions and interventions which shall be imposed for student alcohol and marijuana violations. Sanctions may accelerate based on the progression, severity, or frequency of the violation, particularly when sale or distribution of alcohol or other drugs, or threatening, violent, and/or destructive behavior is present and may include removal from campus housing, suspension, or expulsion. Criminal prosecution may also occur in cases that rise to the level of a crime. Violations accrue over the course of a student’s entire matriculation period. Once a student commits a Level II violation, any future violations within a year of the date of the first will be considered Level II, even if the violation is Level I. If a full year passes without incident, then a Level I violation will be considered as such. Failure to complete conduct requirements may result in accelerated charges, fees, and sanctions including a conduct hold placed on a student's record. The conduct hold will prevent the student from registering for classes or adding/dropping classes until the conduct requirement is completed and the hold is cleared.
