Campus no-alcohol policy gets MADD award

RIT's new no-alcohol policy for residence halls received the Top DWI Educator Award from the Tri-County Chapter of MADD (Mothers Against Drunk Driving) last fall. RIT's "commitment to excellence in education" qualified the institution for the award.

"Many RIT students are grateful to you for your perseverance in the face of what they tell us was some harsh campus criticism. They feel that RIT is a better place to study and grow thanks to your commitment," said local MADD President Frank Musolino to President Simone upon notification of the award.

University officials approved the student drug and alcohol policy in February 1998. The policy prohibits alcohol consumption in all residence halls.
