Calvin University seeks to encourage students to help each other by seeking appropriate medical attention when the need arises. When a student calls for medical aid for himself/herself or another student out of a safety concern, s/he will not be sanctioned for any accompanying conduct code violations. The college's main concern is getting the proper medical care for the student in need. Students should call for help and NOT drive anyone in need of medical attention. Most students are not trained to care for a person who may become ill or disruptive which could impact one's ability to drive safely. Students observing another student "in danger” due to alcohol or substance consumption are expected to take action and seek medical attention for the impaired person.
