    violations consistent with state law
  • Student(s) subject to discipline whether conduct
    takes place on or off campus or whether civil or
    criminal penalties are also imposed for such
    conduct
  • Ignorance of the policy does not protect from
    disciplinary action

Summary
  • Symptoms of alcohol overdose include slow
    respiration, lapses in breathing skin
    irregularities and unresponsiveness.
  • The FIRST thing you should do if you suspect
    someone is experiencing an alcohol overdose is
    call 911.
  • When you are confronting someone who is causing
    problems when alcohol is present, it is best to
    use first-person/I-statements.
  • Red flags that indicate that a person may have an
    alcohol problem include drinking in the morning
    to treat a hangover, forgetting or denying events
    that happened when drunk, and setting limits but
    not sticking to them.
  • Alcohol Medical Emergency Call for Help (AMECH)
    is a free service to currently enrolled UT
    students.

19
Summary
  • A social host is a private individual or group of
    people who serve alcohol in a non-commercial
    setting.
  • You can reduce risk and liability associated with
    alcohol by watching out for problem drinkers and
    intervene early, hiring a third party vendor, and
    preventing service of alcohol to minors.
  • Negligence reflects an individual falling short
    of what a reasonable person would be expected to
    protect another person from foreseeable risks of
    harm.
  • Students and student organizations can be subject
    to university discipline for underage drinking,
    driving while intoxicated, and public
    intoxication.
