Medical Amnesty at Earlham College

The purpose of Medical Amnesty is to remove barriers to help-seeking and, thereby, to increase the likelihood that students who require emergency medical assistance as a result of high-risk alcohol consumption will receive such assistance.

Individuals who become incapacitated, seriously injured, unconscious or are otherwise unable to care for themselves following alcohol consumption should never be left alone; they require immediate medical assessment and intervention. Therefore, students who seek medical assistance for themselves or others will not be subject to disciplinary sanctions related to the consumption of alcohol. This medical amnesty applies only to the consumption of alcohol. Students will remain liable under the Student Code of Conduct for secondary behavior that might occur while intoxicated, including, but not limited to, property damage, assault against another person or sexual misconduct.
