OSCR’s Adaptable Conflict Resolution for Alcohol and Other Drugs (ACR-for-AOD) program allows students to address alcohol or other drug-related incidents in a safe, confidential setting, and without incurring a disciplinary record. Please note that this is an educational meeting, not a health care intervention. While all ACR-for-AOD meetings involve certain key elements, the exact content and outcomes of a student’s ACR-for-AOD program will depend upon the nature of the incident and the student’s specific needs. A typical ACR-for-AOD meeting entails the following key elements:
- A review of the Statement of Student Rights and Responsibilities
- A discussion of options for resolving the AOD-related incident that led to the referral to OSCR,
- A discussion of the incident,
- A discussion of the student’s general AOD-related use,
- A discussion of the student’s other experiences as a member of the University community,
- A discussion of free, campus-based AOD-related educational and health care resources, and
- A specification of next steps, if any, to successfully complete the ACR-for-AOD program.
In the event that you elect to complete the ACR-for-AOD program, be prepared to have a meaningful discussion about your incident, your alcohol and/or other drug use, as well as your general experiences as a member of the University community. Students are not obligated to use the ACR-for-AOD pathway to resolve AOD-related incidents. All students have the right under the Statement to contest the allegation and to request a formal hearing, administered under the Formal Conflict Resolution (“FCR”) process.
