Wagner and other Miami officials cited the school’s many alcohol abuse awareness education programs — including a “Good Samaritan” policy that allows students who themselves may be impaired to report other students they believe are in danger. Students reporting on classmates can do so without suffering administrative repercussions or punishment for their intoxication.
