Educational Services and Sanctions
Student Rights and Responsibilities is committed to student learning and development. In meeting with students, we may recommend or sanction educational or support services that are appropriate. Below are some examples of sanctions.
Alcohol and Other Drug (AOD) Assessment
Students may be required (as a student conduct outcome) or desire to speak to a College counselor regarding substance use. This assessment consists of meeting with the College's AOD counselor over a two-session period. To schedule an appointment, call (717) 361-1405. Counseling Services is located in the Center for Student Success, on the second floor of the BSC (Baugher Student Center). If a student is assigned an AOD assessment, their student account will be billed $100.
BASICS (Brief Alcohol and Other Drug Screening and Intervention for College Students)
The Brief Alcohol Screening and Intervention for College Students (BASICS) is a program offered by Counseling Services to help students evaluate their drinking behaviors. The BASICS program focuses on a harm reduction approach to motivate students to reduce alcohol use and the associated negative consequences of drinking.
The program consists of two (2) sessions with an Elizabethtown College staff counselor. The initial session focuses on recent alcohol consumption patterns, beliefs about alcohol and drinking history. The final session reviews individualized negative consequences, risk factors, and engages students to make healthy decisions and positive changes in their drinking behaviors.
This service available for students who want to explore their use or abuse of substances. The program is designed so that students may examine behaviors in a judgment-free environment. Students may be assigned this sanction as part of an outcome in the student conduct process. Students may also elect to take this program. If a student is assigned BASICS, their student account will be billed $85.
CHOICES is a brief, one-time group session lasting 90 minutes. It is designed to engage students in a self-reflective process on alcohol education, and includes discussion about the risks associated with excessive drinking. The goal is to gain knowledge on these risks, examine and reflect on your own attitudes and behaviors toward alcohol use, and to identify strategies to avoid harmful drinking.
CHOICES sessions are offered on a monthly-basis during the school year. Students may be assigned this sanction as part of an outcome in the student conduct process. Students may also elect to take this program. If a student is assigned an CHOICES, their student account will be billed $25.
A student may be required to review a policy, watch a video, attend a program, or have a facilitated discussion with another staff member and write a reflection paper that reinforces an understanding of our policies and community’s expectations, understand how an incident affects self and others, and evaluate outcomes.
