SEMP Training

SEMP Training will introduce students to risk management, social host liability and college policies. Through this presentation participants will be able to identify potential risks and gain knowledge of the Dartmouth College Social Event Management Procedures. SEMP Training may also be held in individual houses or event spaces on campus. Please contact Sam Waltemeyer to schedule SEMP training for your individual chapter or college organization
TiPS Training for Servers
Servers are required to attend a TIPS training course and pass the certification exam. Servers are members who are at least 21 years old and have previously attended SEMP training. 
The TiPS University program is tailored for students at universities and colleges. This program gives students the skills they need to intervene with their peers in social situations to prevent alcohol-related incidents. Whether or not students choose to drink, TIPS  recognizes that at some point in their college careers, they will face situations where alcohol is being consumed. They may face scenarios involving alcohol abuse, underage drinking or drunk driving, and incidents that can lead to property damage, alcohol liability, and human tragedy. Young people need strategies for creating safe, responsible and socially enjoyable campus environments.
Students are in the best position to address drinking behaviors among their peers. They are close to the situation and understand the culture on their campuses. TIPS develops students' social skills and gives specific information for detecting when friends have had too much to drink or are getting into trouble with alcohol. Students learn specific strategies and skills for intervening in alcohol-related situations that may develop on campus. Unique in its approach, TIPS brings together administrators, faculty and students to create responsible campus atmospheres.
TIPS builds on students' concerns for the safety of their peers. Students learn decision-making skills that help guide their behavior and are more likely to consider the consequences of their actions. In addition, students gain more confidence to intervene in difficult alcohol-related situations to prevent alcohol-related incidents on campus. Register for TiPS Training here
Calculating Servings
Number of members and guests over 21 X hours of event) = number of servings 
For example: 
75 members and guests over 21 x 2 hours = 150 servings =1 keg of beer or cider
Determine quantity necessary to accommodate number of servings
Servings for Tier 1 and Tier 2 events are calculated when registering your event online and will be shown on the confirmation email
Tier 3 event servings are calculated with the GLOS staff member at the event meeting prior to the event
Alcohol should not be purchased until approval is granted 
1 x 12 oz CAN = 1 SERVING
1 x KEG = 150 SERVINGS
1 x 750 ml (25oz) BOTTLE = 5 SERVINGS
1 x 1500 ml (50oz) BOTTLE =10 SERVINGS
1 x 3 LITER (100oz) BOX = 20 SERVINGS
1 x 5 LITER (169oz) BOX = 33 SERVINGS
1 x 750 ml (25 oz) BOTTLE = "FIFTH" = 25 SERVINGS
1 x 1,000 ml (33.8 oz) BOTTLE = LITER = 33 SERVINGS
1 x 1,750 ml (60 oz) BOTTLE = "HANDLE" = 60 SERVINGS
