Alcohol Education & Treatment
a) Davidson College shall provide a program of education concerning the use and abuse of alcohol and other drugs. Each year there will be a mandatory session for first-year students during Orientation and the first semester. These sessions shall be planned by the Office of the Dean of Students in cooperation with the Health Education Program, Residence Life Office, the Counseling Center and the College Union. Patterson Court organizations will be required to participate annually in an educational program planned by the Office of the Dean of Students and the Patterson Court Advisor.
b) The Dean of the Faculty will seek to involve the Davidson faculty in a comprehensive effort to inform them and to sensitize their students to the issue of alcohol abuse. The Dean is further encouraged to help faculty members attend workshops conducted by the Counseling Center so they are alert to signs of abuse by their students and are able to refer these students to the Office of the Dean of Students for intervention and treatment.
c) The Counseling Center and the Health Education Program will provide annual workshops for Hall Counselors and Resident Advisors in intervention techniques to provide assistance to those students who abuse alcohol.
d) The Office of the Dean of Students, the Patterson Court Advisor, the Counseling Center, the Health Educator, and the Student Health Center will review annually the alcohol and other drug education programs.
2. Counseling and Treatment
A program of counseling and treatment will be established by the Health Educator and the Counseling Center to include prevention, intervention, treatment, and support.
The Committee on Campus and Religious Life (CCRL) will evaluate this policy periodically. Changes or reviews prior to that time may be conducted by the Office of the Dean of Students in conjunction with the Committee on Campus and Religious Life. This review should include a statistical summary of alcohol-related disciplinary cases, as well as evaluations by the Counseling Center, the Director of Residence Life, the Patterson Court Advisor, the Health Educator, the SGA, the Union Board, and the Patterson Court Council
