Good Samaritan Policy


The purpose of this policy is to outline and define Columbia College’s Good Samaritan policy.


This policy applies to all students at Columbia College.


The College is committed to the safety and well-being of all members of the College community. This policy is intended to encourage students to seek assistance from appropriate sources in the event of a health, medical or safety emergency by alleviating the threat of disciplinary action by the College if a student’s conduct would otherwise violate the College’s Alcohol and Other Drugs Policy. Specifically, in situations involving a threat or danger to the health or safety of any individual, students are encouraged and expected to seek appropriate medical attention for themselves and others as soon as possible as long as it is safe to do so.
