Amnesty

The health and safety of every student at the College is of utmost importance. Marist College recognizes that students who have been drinking  and/or  using  drugs  (whether  such use is voluntary or involuntary) at the time that violence, including  but  not  limited  to domestic  violence,  dating violence, stalking, or sexual assault occurs may be hesitant to report such incidents due to fear of potential consequences  for  their  own  conduct.  The College strongly   encourages students to report domestic violence, dating violence, stalking, or sexual assault to institutional officials.  A  bystander  acting  in  good faith  or a reporting individual acting in good faith that discloses any incident of domestic violence,  dating  violence,  stalking,  or  sexual assault  to  College officials  or  law enforcement will not be subject to the College‚Äôs code of  conduct  action  for  violations  of alcohol  and/or  drug  use policies occurring at or near the time of the commission of the domestic violence, dating violence, stalking, or sexual assault.
