Alcohol, Parties, Noise & Litter: Working Together for Progress

Miami University's Alcohol Coordinating Committee has designated an Off-Campus Partnerships and Inteventions workgroup to address the impact of town gown issues such as noise and litter violations, house parties, social hosting laws, and community standards.
The workgroup identified the visibility of high-risk house parties as its first priority and has spent the past year developing a system to hold students more accountable for their actions off-campus.
As the workgroup moves to additional measures of accountability, we invite landlords, rental property owners, and property managers to attend a presentation and open forum with members of the Off-Campus Partnerships and Interventions workgroup to a) hear about the important work this group is accomplishing b) learn possible additional solutions, including universal lease language, new ordinances, landlord notification, and c) provide feedback on your experiences and these processes.

On the page, students can complete a brief form to be added to a database that can help them get connected with other students in similar situations.

Walkabout - Save the Date
