Northwest Missouri State University officials are hoping to help students who need assistance as a result of drug or alcohol consumption.

During yesterday's Board of Regents meeting, the board approved a change to the Student Code of Conduct. Vice President of Student Affairs, Dr. Matt Baker says under the policy, the university will not impose punitive sanctions against students who seek emergency medical attention for themselves or someone else related to the consumption of drugs or alcohol.

Baker says the provision applies to the first violation, but students may be required to attend educational counseling sessions. He adds the amendment does not grant amnesty from criminal, civil or legal consequences for violations of federal, state or local laws. The change in the Student Code of Conduct goes into effect immediately.
