Training Intervention Procedures for Servers (TIPS)

TIPS is a national server education and risk management program. This two-hour program reviews W&M's alcohol policy, intoxication factors, behavioral cues of intoxication, and intervention techniques using lecture, videos, and participatory activities. Each participant receives a TIPS manual and can receive a TIPS University certification.

Student organizations are required to have members TIPS trained in order to register social events with alcohol. For more information on the alcohol policy, see Appendix IV: Alcohol Beverage Policy and VII: Policy Notice Regarding Alcohol and Other Drug Use in the Student Handbook. For more information on TIPS requirements for student organizations, contact the Student Activities Office at (757) 221-3300.
