Abstract

The goal of this project was to analyze and improve the safety of social drinking culture at WPI. Through interviews of student leaders and faculty, and a survey of students, the team concluded that social drinking is prevalent at WPI, fraternity parties are generally safer than apartment parties at WPI, and that WPI’s good Samaritan policy—the Culture of Care Resolution—needs strengthening and increased awareness. The team developed recommendations and educational material for WPI faculty, event hosts, and event guests.
