PartySafePlus Programs

PartySafePlus and PartySafePlus: Help a Friend are engaging programs that promote the enhancement of knowledge and development of skills which support students in providing positive and safe social events on campus.  The PartySafePlus program has two parts that students complete to be PartySafePlus certified.  PartySafePlus Online lasts approximately 25-35 minutes and consists of an online program that focuses on:

  1. MIT specific statistics around drinking
  2. Law and policies related to alcohol use and sexual misconduct
  3. Basic alcohol pharmacology
  4. Rape/sexual assault and sexual misconduct
  5. Differences between men and women when it comes to alcohol consumption
  6. Liability issues and event registration expectations
  7. Responsible party behavior as both a host and a guest
  8. How to help a friend
  9. How to be an active bystander

Once students have completed PartySafePlus Online

Students who have completed PartySafePlus are able to register for PartySafePlus Scenarios, which take the knowledge gained in Part I and provides students an opportunity to work through common difficult scenarios in a group format. This portion of the program takes approximately 45-60 minutes to complete. Within residence halls, if 75% of a floor, entry, or other sub-community completes the PartySafePlus training in it’s entirety (both online and in person), those groups will be eligible for $200 Tech Cash award to be used for purchasing food and non-alcoholic beverages for events. This same opportunity is available for FSILGs who get 75% of membership completely trained.  For more information, please reach out to tmelen@mit.edu.
