Alcohol Policy

The Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act of 1989

The federal Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act of 1989 requires all institutions of higher education to adopt and implement a program to prevent the use of illicit drugs and the abuse of alcohol by residents and employees as a condition of the institution receiving federal funds or any other form of financial assistance under any federal program. This policy is being issued by the College in compliance with the requirements of that Act. Emmanuel College strives to provide a safe and healthy environment for residents. The College policy on alcohol use is designed to promote these goals and to reduce the harm resulting from the misuse and abuse of alcohol. Along with substantial health and safety risks are potentially significant legal consequences. Residents, staff and faculty of Emmanuel are urged to familiarize themselves with the information contained within this policy.

Guidelines for Alcohol Policy

During the summer, Emmanuel College is an alcohol-free campus.

Sanctions for Non-Compliance

Residents are required to abide by all requirements of the Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act and this policy as a condition of continued residency. A resident who violates any provision of this policy is subject to disciplinary action, up to and including removal from the College. Also, in appropriate circumstances, as determined by the College, law enforcement officials may be notified. Unlawful possession, use, or distribution of alcohol may subject a resident to criminal penalties.

Enforcement

Residence hall staff will address any persons suspected of using or keeping alcohol in a residence hall. In such an instance, residence hall staff will conduct a visual inspection of the location and require the person(s) to gather and, in the presence of the responding staff member, discard all alcohol. Residence hall staff in conjunction with Campus Safety and/or other authorized personnel will assess the condition of any intoxicated persons involved and provide appropriate care. If such an incident occurs in a residence hall room, any guest of the resident(s) at that time will be asked to leave the room and/or hall. The responding staff member(s) will document the situation and all residents involved may be subject to disciplinary action.

Alcohol and The Laws of The Commonwealth of Massachusetts

The legal age in Massachusetts is defined by M.G.L. 138 12, which makes it unlawful for licensed vendors to sell to anyone under 21 years of age. Minors are not permitted to purchase or even make arrangements to purchase alcoholic beverages (M.G.L. 138 34A). It is also unlawful for minors to transport any alcoholic beverages (M.G.L. 13834B). Anyone who procures any alcoholic beverages for a minor violates M.G.L. 138 34. The sale of alcoholic beverages by a licensed vendor to a minor is illegal under M.G.L. 138 34, which also makes it unlawful for a patron to procure such beverages for a minor at any licensed establishment. The penalty for violating this law is a $1000 fine or six months imprisonment or both. Minors may not misrepresent their age in order to purchase or attempt to purchase any alcoholic beverages (M.G.L. 148 34A). The same law makes it illegal to deface, alter or otherwise falsify an identification card to obtain alcoholic beverages. The penalty for violating this statute is a $300 fine. Those of legal age are precluded by the same law from making a false statement about a minor's age in order to effectuate a sale to a minor or from inducing a minor to make a false statement in order to obtain alcoholic beverages. Persons under 21 years of age may not transport alcoholic beverages and those who do so while operating an automobile are subject to revocation of their driver's license for a maximum of three months (M.G.L. 138 34C).

Drugs and Narcotics Policy

The Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act Of 1989

The federal Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act of 1989 requires all institutions of higher education to adopt and implement a program to prevent the use of illicit drugs and the abuse of alcohol by residents and employees as a condition of the institution receiving federal funds or any other form of financial assistance under any federal program. This policy is being issued by the College in compliance with the requirements of that Act.

Emmanuel College strives to provide a safe and healthy environment for residents. The College policy on drug use is designed to promote these goals and to reduce the harm resulting from the misuse and abuse of drugs. Along with substantial health and safety risks are potentially significant legal consequences and residents are urged to familiarize themselves with the information contained within this policy.

Prohibitions

Emmanuel College supports all laws governing the possession, use and sale of illegal drugs and fully cooperates with the enforcement of all such laws. Please note that although legal for recreational use in the state of Massachusetts, marijuana consumption and possession is prohibited under federal law. Colleges and universities who accept federal funds must remain compliant with the Drug Free Schools and Communities Act Of 1989. The College strictly forbids the use, possession of distribution of illegal drugs, or use, possession or distribution of illegal drug paraphernalia. Note, "drug paraphernalia" includes materials, products, instruments or items used to create, manufacture, distribute, use, or otherwise manipulate any drug. Paraphernalia includes, but is not limited to hypodermic needles, syringes, bongs, pipes, grinders, scales. Because they may be used to ingest illegal stimulants, vapes are also considered drug paraphernalia. The College also strictly forbids the use of illegal drugs at College sponsored events off campus. In addition, all residents present at the time of a drug violation may be subject to disciplinary action.

Sanctions for Non-Compliance

Residents are required to abide by all requirements of the Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act and this policy as a condition of continued residency at the College. A resident who violates any provision of this policy will be removed from campus. Also, in appropriate circumstances, as determined by the College, law enforcement officials may be notified. Unlawful possession, use, or distribution of illicit drugs may subject a resident to criminal penalties. Any resident determined to be manufacturing, dealing, selling, or distributing illegal drugs on or off campus will be removed from the College. Such residents may be subject to arrest and further legal action. The College will cooperate fully with law enforcement officials in the investigation and prosecution of drug related cases. The College will assume a resident is dealing drugs if the resident possesses a large quantity of illegal drugs. For example, more than two ounces of marijuana and more than four grams of cocaine would constitute a large quantity of illegal drugs.

Enforcement

Persons suspected of bringing illicit drug on their person or in their belongings on property owned or leased by the College will be subject to search by the residence hall staff, Campus Safety staff or other authorized personnel. The responding staff member will document the situation. All residents involved may be subject to disciplinary action. Residence hall staff members will address any persons suspected of using or keeping illicit drugs or paraphernalia in a residence hall. In such an instance, residence hall and/or Campus Safety staff will conduct a visual inspection of the location and require the resident(s) to gather and surrender any illicit drugs or paraphernalia. Campus Safety will confiscate all found/surrendered illicit drugs or paraphernalia. If such an incident occurs in a residence hall room, any guest of the resident(s) at that time will be asked to leave the room and/or hall. The responding staff member(s) will document the situation and all residents involved may be subject to disciplinary action.

Federal Drug Offenses

The criminal offenses most commonly charged under the Federal Controlled Substances Act are the knowing, intentional and unauthorized manufacture, distribution or dispensing of any controlled substance or the possession of any controlled substance with the intent to manufacture, distribute or dispense. Federal law also prohibits the knowing, intentional and unauthorized creation, distribution, dispensing or possession with intent to distribute or dispense a "counterfeit substance." Simple possession without necessarily the intent to distribute is also forbidden by federal law and carries a penalty of imprisonment. Furthermore, attempts and/or conspiracies to distribute or possess with intent to distribute controlled substances are crimes under federal law. Specific drug crimes carry greater penalties, including:

  • The distribution of narcotics to persons under 21.
  • The distribution or manufacturing of narcotics near schools and colleges.
  • The employment of juveniles under the age of 18 in drug trafficking operations.
  • The distribution of controlled substances to pregnant women.
  • The penalties for violating federal narcotics statutes vary considerably and may be harsher based on two principal factors: 1. The type of drug involved (heroin, cocaine, marijuana, LSD, etc.) 2. The quantity of the drug involved. With the exception of simple possession charges which result in up to one-year imprisonment, maximum penalties for narcotic violations range from 20 years to life in prison. Certain violations carry mandatory minimum prison sentences of either five years or ten years. Harsher penalties will be imposed if a firearm is used in the commission of a drug offense. If a drug offense results in death or serious bodily injury to an individual who uses the drug involved, the penalties are also harsher. Anabolic steroids are controlled substances. Distribution or possession with intent to distribute carries a sentence of up to five years and a $250,000 fine. Questions sometimes arise as to what number of narcotics found in the possession of a person are considered to be for personal use as opposed to the more serious offense of possession with the intent to distribute. Federal law, generally, considers anything more than a dosage unit as indicating the intent to distribute. In other words, the greater quantity possessed, the more likely it is that an individual in possession has the intent to distribute.

Patrols and Medical First Response

High Visibility Security Patrol

Emmanuel College Campus Safety Officers patrol the campus 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Campus Safety Officers patrol all buildings during all hours of operation, as well as during non-operational periods. All Campus Safety Officers’ primary function is to ensure the safety and wellbeing of all persons on campus. As such officers observe and report security breaches, safety hazards, suspicious activity and persons, water leaks, defective exterior lighting and other hazards. Additionally, Campus Safety Officers monitor all activities, respond to alarms and other emergency situations, conduct safety and security audits, maintain control of vehicle traffic onto the campus and enforce College parking regulations. All Campus Safety Officers are equipped with two-way radio communications and stay in constant contact with the Campus Safety Communications Center in EAB 139.

Security/Traffic Booth

Emmanuel College Campus Safety Officers staff the security booth at the only entrance to the college for vehicular traffic. This assignment provides access control to the college for all vehicles. Every vehicle is required to stop at the booth to ensure that they have a valid purpose for driving and/or parking on campus. This face-to-face interaction with vehicle operators entering campus is a critical part of providing security and safety services to the Emmanuel Residents, Faculty, and Staff.

Bike Patrol

Emmanuel College Campus Safety utilizes bicycle patrol as an effective way of patrolling the campus while increasing visibility among the Emmanuel College community. Bike patrol is utilized during fall move-in and annual commencement.

First Responders

All Campus Safety Officers are trained first responders with AHA CPR Certification. Officers also undergo training in automated external defibrillator (AED) training, Stop the Bleed, and NARCAN. All medical emergencies should be directed through Campus Safety at 617 735-9888 or 617 735-9710 for coordination with Boston EMS. It is essential that information be provided to Campus Safety to assist with the medical response and potential transportation to emergency facilities off campus.

An Individual’s Role in Safety and Crime Prevention

Individual community members, particularly residents, have a critical role in crime prevention on campus. If you see something that doesn’t look right or safe immediately alert Campus Safety. If Campus Safety is not made aware of an incident, it cannot provide assistance to those in need or work to prevent it from occurring again. We prefer that community members have a low threshold for reporting something than not to report an incident at all. Remember that most incidents are favorably resolved through early intervention. Observation and Communication are critical elements of crime prevention.

Please note the following community crime prevention and safety guidelines:

  • Have a very low threshold for reporting something or someone behaving suspicious or unsafe.
  • Voice your concerns about crime and safety at Emmanuel College.
  • Do not wait until crimes occur or problems get out of control; immediately raise concerns with Campus Safety. Remember that early intervention is critical in effective problem solving.
  • Report and provide information about crimes, suspicious activities, and anything perceived as unsafe or harmful to the Emmanuel Community.
  • A rapid and effective response by Campus Safety Officers is greatly assisted by accurate and timely reports of emergencies and/or suspicious activities.

Remember to immediately report any emergency to Campus Safety at 617-735-9888 or to 911.

Fire Safety

  • If a resident or any member of the Emmanuel College community discovers a fire, the resident should activate an alarm and immediately leave the building. The resident can then notify Campus Safety (617-735-9888 or 617-735-9710) or Statewide 911.
  • Every resident must evacuate the building immediately when the fire alarm sounds. Do not wait for an RA to tell you to evacuate! Failure to do so could result in disciplinary action.
  • Each resident is responsible for knowing the fire exits throughout the building.
  • Elevators should never be used when the fire alarm rings.
  • Emergency exits may be used in case of emergency only.
  • It is both a state (Mass. General Laws Ch. 29, Sec. 13) and federal offense to tamper with fire equipment such as alarms, fire extinguisher, or other fire safety equipment. Residents who tamper with such equipment may receive disciplinary action up to and including removal from campus. Offending individuals may also be criminally charged.
  • Candles, incense, live Christmas trees, ceiling decorations, microwave ovens, toasters and toaster ovens, hot plates, electric heaters, rice cookers, hot pots, coffeemakers and other like items may not be used or stored in resident rooms. Hot pots, coffee makers, rice cookers, and microwaves must be used in the kitchen area.
  • Halogen lamps are not allowed in the residence halls. The intense heat given off by the light bulb is a fire hazard.

Policy on Bomb Threats

  • An individual who receives a phone call announcing a bomb threat in a building should call Campus Safety at 617-735-9888 or 617-735-9710 and give the name and number of the person to whom the call was made, and any particular details.
  • Campus Safety, in conjunction with other campus leadership personnel, will determine the response procedure in coordination with the Boston Police and Fire Departments.
  • Residents should follow all directions of the staff, campus safety officers, and emergency response personnel.
  • College personnel have the right to require evacuation of any building.
  • Campus Safety may search the public/common areas of the building. After the search, residents will be notified when to re-enter the building.

Failure to Follow Directives from a College or Municipal Official
Failure to comply with the lawful directions of any college official, staff member, or student employee, who is acting in the performance of their duties, is prohibited.

Firearms/Weapons Policy
Only Emmanuel College Campus Police Officers are authorized to carry weapons. Any item of a questionable nature should be checked in with Campus Safety at EAB Room 139.

Guest Policy
The Residence Hall Guest Visitation Policy is designed to balance the needs and interests of all members of the residence community while supporting residence hall safety, resident comfort and campus community. Regular visitation hours establish parameters within which residents can visit with friends and family while maintaining a living environment conducive to privacy and sleep. After hours/overnight visitation hours recognize that late-night socializing is an important part of developing community.

Finally, the College recognizes that hosting family and friends strengthens long-distance relationships. It is important to emphasize that as a Catholic College, Emmanuel does not condone sexual activity in the residence halls and strives to endow residents with the tools, knowledge, and resources to behave in a moral, ethical, and respectful manner at all times. Further, Emmanuel is committed to supporting residents rights to privacy and sleep. When roommates cannot agree, the right of the roommate to occupy their room has priority over the right of the roommate to have an after-hours/overnight guest. Residents are expected to bring any problems or concerns to the Residence Life staff. Residents who are uncooperative with their roommate or apartment-mate, or who violate the guest policy can expect to have their guest privileges and residency reviewed and potentially revoked.

Smoking Policy/ Clean Air Policy

Emmanuel College is committed to building a culture of wellness for all members of the community by providing an environment that promotes the well-being and safety of residents, faculty, staff and visitors. Emmanuel College prohibits smoking, vaping, and the use of tobacco products on the Fenway and Notre Dame campuses. No smoking, vaping or tobacco use will be permitted on College grounds, in common or private work areas, elevators, hallways, restrooms, dining areas, lounges, conference and meeting rooms and all other enclosed or semi-enclosed areas. Additionally, no smoking, vaping or tobacco use will be permitted in outdoor areas including parking lots, parking garages (including inside personal vehicles), grounds, rooftops, courtyards, entrance/exit ways, athletic facilities, College-owned or leased vehicles, and any other indoor or outdoor areas owned or managed by the College.

Resident Identification Cards

All residents receive an Emmanuel College Summer identification card, which may be obtained from the Campus Safety Department. The card must be presented at security desks within the residence halls. All residents are required to surrender their I.D. card to front desk personnel to sign-in guests. They are also required to surrender their I.D. cards at College functions when requested. I.D. cards are not transferable. 

All residents must enter and exit the residence halls through the main entrance. Side doors are alarmed 24 hours a day and may be used only as fire/emergency exits. The front doors of the residence halls are locked at all times, unless the College deems it appropriate for doors to remain open. Please note that public access to locations across the campus is subject to the discretion of the institution. For example, as modifications are made to COVID-related policies, building access may be restricted. All access will be communicated to the College community.

  • A Resident Assistant (RA) indicates the condition of the room and the room's general condition prior to resident move in. Residents are responsible for reporting any damages discovered during the first few weeks to their RA or Residence Director.
  • An RA must inspect each resident's room before check-out. The RA indicates the condition of the room on the digital Physical Inventory Form. After reviewing the forms and the physical space, the Residence Director will determine appropriate damage billing, if any. These forms are the basis for damage assessments with final assessment occurring after residents leave. Residents are held accountable for the cost of replacement, repair, or damage.
  • Residents are not permitted to use nails, glue, thumbtacks, etc. If any damage occurs (holes, paint chips, etc.), residents will be responsible for the repair of the damage.
  • Residents will be held liable for the cost of any damage to their assigned rooms and to common areas. If staff cannot determine clear responsibility for damage to common areas, the College will divide the cost of damage among all residents in the area. The cost of the damage will be added to the resident's account and a financial hold will be placed on the account until the damage fees are paid.
  • Whenever a resident moves out of a room, that resident must officially check out of that space. The process for this will be outlined by the Office of Residence Life and Housing in communications directly to the resident.

Physical Inventory Forms

Damage or defects in resident rooms should be reported to the Resident Assistant (RA) and/or an Assistant Director/Resident Hall Director (AD/RD). Reports should also be made when equipment or College property is damaged. Furniture must be kept clear of the technology outlets. The physical inventory form from the beginning of the resident's time in the room to the completion of the academic
year will be used to assess damages after closing.

Room Inspection and Entry

College staff members may enter resident rooms for reasons of health and safety inspections, emergencies, suspicion of illegal activities/policy infractions, or maintenance concerns. By submitting a work order, you are giving permission for your room to be entered for repairs, etc. Notice of coming health and safety inspections will be posted throughout the entire residence hall prior to the actual inspection. College personnel will not intrude into your personal effects or otherwise search your room except with your permission or by appropriate legal authority with a search warrant. Prohibited items such as pets, firearms, incense, candles, and unauthorized appliances will be removed, and you will be notified of such removals.

Rooms are not carpeted, but an 8' x 10' (2.4 m x 3 m)rug works great in any room if you would like to bring your own. Please note that in St. Julie Hall and other college-sponsored housing, all furniture must remain in its designated location. Furniture in the bedroom must remain in the bedroom and cannot be moved into the common living area outside of individual bedrooms.
