We have changed our name from the NEW TRADITION COALITION to DRAW THE LINE LAWRENCE so it better fits our purpose and mission. We call on all community members to come together and DRAW THE LINE on underage drinking and drug use for a healthier and safer place to live.

On October 22, 2009, the following lettter was sent to all KU students asking about alcohol-related policies at KU. We applaud Emily C. Williams, Chairwoman, Graduate Student for The Committee to Combat Alcohol Abuse and Investigate Related Policy for making this discussion happen.

Fellow Jayhawks,

This semester a committee was formed by the Student Senate Student Rights Committee to look at alcohol abuse at KU and policies regarding alcohol that affect students. We are the only body looking at this issue that was formed by students and is made up entirely of students.

The committee created a short survey that will help us recommend whether any changes to existing alcohol-related policies should be made to ensure that the University of Kansas remains a safe place for all students. Please spend 10 minutes taking the following survey and giving us your input. Your participation is invaluable. This is the time to make your voice heard! If you have a suggestion, we want to hear it.

The information given in the survey is confidential and will be used only to gauge student awareness and to collect student opinions regarding current alcohol-related policies. No personal information will be released and no personally identifiable information is being collected.

Survey: http://studentvoice.com/ukan/rightssubctesurvey09.

If you have any questions or would like more information on the committee, please send an email to rightssubcomm@ku.edu or call the Student Senate office at 785-864-3710. If you have any difficulties with the survey link, call the Office of the Vice Provost for Student Success at 864-4060 for technical assistance.

Also, any student is welcome to join our conversation. The final meetings of the committee will be:

Thursday, Oct. 22 at 8:15pm in Alderson (Union) Thursday, Oct. 28 at 7:00pm in the International Room (Union) Thursday, Nov. 5 at 7:00pm in the Jayhawk Room (Union) Thursday, Nov. 12 at 8:00pm the Big 12 Room (Union)

Please join us!

Rock Chalk,
Emily Williams
