As this semester is approaching the end and you begin to prepare for next semester, the IPRC would like to share information that is important to all students and the Indiana University community.
The Indiana Lifeline Law provides immunity for some alcohol related offenses, subject to certain conditions, to Hoosiers who request medical assistance for someone in need or who receive medical assistance due to a request by someone else. Many students are not aware of the law and how it works.
The IPRC Relationships Committee has prepared a short set of PowerPoint slides that can be included in your courses or in your syllabi. This law can help save lives and we encourage you to share the information with your students about the Lifeline Law. The more opportunities that students have to hear this message, the greater the awareness of the law.
If you have any questions or need additional information and resources about this law or other substance abuse, problem gambling or addiction related topics, please contact the Indiana Prevention Resource Center, www.drugs.indiana.edu or 855-1237.
