The Good Samaritan Provision

The Goal: Assist and Educate - Not Punish

The Good Samaritan Provision gives a student in distress from alcohol or other drug misuse (and those who help the student) the freedom to seek help without fear of student conduct action.  Michigan Tech wants to power their community to Step UP and look out for one another.
