Judicial Referrals

A student may be referred to WesWell by the Community Standards Board (CSB) or other judicial officer on campus; most frequently, these are for alcohol or other drug violations. This page describes what a student may expect for different types of referrals. Students who do not complete their assigned sanctions in a timely manner will be referred back to the CSB or judicial officer for further disciplinary action.  

Individual Meetings

A student referred to WesWell for an individual meeting will be required to set up an appointment. This is most quickly accomplished by emailing Pamela Mulready, WesWell's Alcohol and Other Drug Specialist, at pmulready@wesleyan.edu. Meetings will run approximately 45 minutes. If this meeting is in regards to an alcohol violation, the student may be asked to complete an online assessment and email a copy of the results before their individual meeting. This provides the student with feedback on their behaviors and attitudes and provides a strong starting point for conversation.

 AlcoholEdu for Sanctions Online Course

Students who violate the Code of Non-Academic Conduct Section II, Regulation(s) 13B (Underage Use of Alcohol) may be required to complete an alcohol program specifically for sanctions.  Students will receive written notification with details of the program.  The mission of the online program is to teach about the effects of alcohol on the body and mind, and to assist students in making safer and healthier decisions in order to avoid trouble in the future.

Marijuana-Wise Online Course

Students who violate the Code of Non-Academic Conduct Section II, Regulation(s) 13A (Possession of Illegal Drugs) may be required to complete an online marijuana education program.  Students will receive written notification with details of the program.  Marijuana-Wise is an interactive web-based program that allows college and university students to enter information about their marijuana use and receive indivualized feedback about their use.

University Service Hours

The Community Standards Board has the option of assigning students university service hours as a sanction for violations of the Code of Non-Academic Conduct. The CSB may choose to assign a student to complete their hours with WesWell, typically for an alcohol or drug violation. This may range from 5 to 20 hours or more, depending on the seriousness of the violation and other sanctions assigned.

The Director of Health Education will work with the student to develop a project that can be completed during their assigned hours and which will benefit the office's health education program. Past projects have included web resource research, development of brochures or bulletin board materials, research projects, fliering on campus, and completing clerical tasks, and inventory and organization of the resource room.
