Instate a Responsible Action (Good Samaritan) Policy

(Learn more from the NCCADV’s Model Policy and Guidance documents, page 17).

Sometimes, students are hesitant to offer assistance to others for fear that they may get themselves in trouble. A Responsible Action policy pursues a policy of limited immunity for students who offer help to others in need.

Sometimes policy violations cannot be overlooked, so therefore we recommend that institutions provide educational options, rather than punishment, for violations identified when students have offered their assistance to others in need.
