Undergraduate Student Handbook

Conditional Immunity

George Fox is deeply committed to the health, safety, and well-being of its students.  Students are strongly encouraged to call 911 or seek other medical attention when the health or safety of themselves or others is threatened or appears to be at risk.  The University wants to eliminate barriers for students who may be hesitant to seek medical or emergency help or report the incident to university officials because they fear being held accountable for policy violations (e.g., drinking alcoholic beverages).  To encourage reporting, George Fox pursues a policy of offering students who are accessing help for themselves or others, conditional immunity from being charged with policy violations related to the particular incident.  While there may be no community accountability sanctions for these individuals, the University may provide elements of help, support, and education.
