The health and safety of members of the Ohio University community is of primary concern. Despite the need to seek medical assistance in an emergency situation, some students may be reluctant to seek help out of fear of student conduct charges. Ohio University seeks to remove these perceived barriers that prevent students from seeking medical attention through the Medical Emergency Assistance Protocol, which would allow a student experiencing an alcohol or other drug overdose to receive medical attention without a student conduct charge. It would also remove conduct charges for those who assisted the student in need. For more information about MEA, visit the Division of Student Affairs Community Standards website.
