Alcohol/Drug Workshop: An alcohol or drug workshop is required of all first time alcohol and/or drug policy offenders. They are both designed to address the full range of attitudes and behaviors associated with alcohol/drug use, utilizing strategies rooted in brief intervention, harm reduction strategies, personalized feedback, and social norms theory. Each workshop comes with an assessment component and full participation is required. The alcohol workshop is facilitated by a member of the Prevention& Outreach Services team while the drug workshop is facilitated by our CASAC counselor. Both currently have a $50 facilitation fee.
Party Smart Workshop: This hour long workshop is intended for students who have received a
disorderly house/noise violation off campus and also sanctioned to students over 21 who are charged with possession of alcohol on campus while in the presence of students under 21. This workshop focuses on harm reduction strategies related to alcohol and the hosting of functions where alcohol may be present. Bystander training as well as a refresher on college policies and village ordinances are also a part of the curriculum. It is facilitated by a member of the Prevention & Outreach Services team and currently does not have a facilitation fee.
L.A.U.N.C.H.- Learning, Action, Understanding, Negotiation, Civility, Humanitarianism: This hour and a half long, theoretically based workshop includes several personal, small group and larger group activities meant to empower participants to determine what their own values are, civilly negotiate with others in order to reach compromise, reflect on how their choices affect others and create an action plan for personal and community contributions toward to a more socially just world. It is facilitated by a member of the Student Conduct team and currently does not have a facilitation fee.
Civic Engagement/Community Service: Students will be matched with an on-campus department or off campus agency (depending on where his/her violation occurred) to complete acts of service within a set amount of hours and amount of time, concluding with a reflection paper. This is meant to be mutually beneficial as the students are given an opportunity to meet new people, have new experiences, and become aware of community resources while the site will benefit from the student using his/her
strengths to contribute through service.
Alcohol/Substance Abuse Assessment: The student must participate in an alcohol and other drug assessment in the Counseling Center by a specific date. The student is required to follow all recommendations made by the Counseling Center as a result of the assessment. $100 fee.
Restorative Justice Practices. This is an alternative approach that promotes individual responsibility and community restoration through mutually beneficial solutions that foster repair, reconciliation and the rebuilding of relationships. This process involves helping students that have been charged with a violation of the Code of Student Conduct to understand the harm they may have caused others and facilitate the development of empathy for those harmed by their behavior(s).
Mediation. When a case involves conflict between students, groups or organizations, the parties may be assigned to mediation by the student conduct officer. Mediation is an objective, confidential and non judgmental process whereby both parties to a dispute meet with a mediator who will assist them in reaching a written agreement to resolve their conflict. Parties are responsible for complying with the terms of the agreement. Violated agreements will not be remediated, but may necessitate further student conduct action. Note: Mediation will not be used to resolve complaints of non-consensual sexual contact and/or non-consensual sexual intercourse.
