Adopt the SA-Proposed Medical Amnesty Policy

This petition made change with 488 supporters!


Student safety should be the College's top priority. Many students resist calling 911 (or OSES) in an alcohol or drug emergency because they do not want to cause their friends to be put on probation. A student should never be punished for calling (or receiving) medical attention.

Instead of punishing students in these situations, the College should help them through counseling and education to encourage safe drinking habits. This type of policy would cause more SUNY Oneonta students to get the help they need.

(The College Council passed a Medical Amnesty policy on February 15th, but after considerations from the college's lawyer, it will be go back up for discussion this Tuesday)
