The Arts and Sciences Graduate Programs, Dartmouth Medical School, Thayer School of Engineering and the Tuck School of Business are working together to encourage a safe social atmosphere for members of the graduate and professional student communities and their guests.
These guidelines distill pertinent information contained in the Dartmouth College Alcohol and Event Policies with the goal of facilitating event planning at the graduate and professional schools. Compliance with stated Dartmouth College policy is required. Students are encouraged to visit the following websites for complete policy and procedure details:
Social gatherings at Dartmouth College are an important part of our community life. For all events, regardless if alcohol is present, we strive to achieve the following goals:
The following student sponsored events are subject to these guidelines:
Graduate student event organizers will submit an on-line Social Event Registration Form to Safety and Security by noon at least three business days prior to the event. The event registration will not be approved if this form is not completed (see: http://www.dartmouth.edu/~orl/greek-soc/semp/eventreg/eventreg-form.htmlfor web site of Social Event Registration Form). This form may be completed in person at the Safety and Security Office where one additional form must be completed (in person).
In addition, the hosts should send Assistant Dean of Graduate Student Affairs (Kerry Landers) an email with a description of the event and include the names of the hosts and monitors. The host will then need to pick up a signed letter (on Graduate Studies letterhead) from the Assistant Dean and submit the letter in person to Safety and Security (5 Rope Ferry Road) three days before the event. Risk management requires hosts, monitors and servers to obtain and retain a Certificate of Achievement in "Total Education in Alcohol Management" from the State of New Hampshire. Email AOD @dartmouth.edu for directions on how to obtain this certificate.
The sober monitor coordinator should send an email before each event reminding the monitors of their responsibilities. The hosts (i.e. the Socials) should meet with Safety and Security if an event has unique details (i.e. the brewfest).The hosts and alcohol monitors must be alcohol-free and sober for the duration of the event and available to respond in case of an emergency.
If there are any problems during the event, the organizers will contact Safety and Security directly (646-2234).
If Safety and Security comes to the event and observes a problem, they will seek out one of the organizers (hosts) and inform them of the problem at that time. The person/people responsible for the event should proactively make themselves noticeable and available so that they are easily identified by Safety and Security Officers.
The expectation is the facility used for an event will be left in the same condition as it was found. At the end of the event, the organizers are responsible for making sure that all remaining alcohol is locked up and secured and that trash is put in its appropriate receptacle. This means that all kegs empty or otherwise should be untapped and locked away. Any remaining alcohol that has already been served (i.e., cups of beer) should be collected and discarded.
