RE: Proposed New Rule 8.5 on Mandatory Assessment and Revisions to Rules 16 and 17

The CCG has worked closely with William Riley, Dean of Students, and with Patricia Askew, Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs, to draft language for the Code that would address the problem of students incapacitated by drugs or alcohol to the extent that transportation to a hospital is necessary.

Should this new language be adopted, Rule 16 ought then to be amended to add a section D that reads,

D. Drug use resulting in incapacitation that requires transportation to the hospital by emergency medical personnel, or refusal to accept such transportation when it is recommended by emergency medical personnel, can trigger a mandatory assessment (see Rule 8.5).

And Rule 17 ought to be amended to add a section E that reads,

E. Alcohol use resulting in incapacitation that requires transportation to the hospital by emergency medical personnel, or refusal to accept such transportation when it is recommended by emergency medical personnel, can trigger a mandatory assessment (see Rule 8.5).
