mytorch.tech

Campus safety help request app for NYU Abu Dhabi (or any other campus!) Check out the app here: mytorch.tech.

Our team created mytorch.tech to resolve issues arising in the legal gray area of alcohol and other types of misconduct at NYU Abu Dhabi. The UAE being a Muslim country forbids residents including NYUAD student the consumption of alcohol with rare exceptions. Some students regardless choose to abuse substances, which puts them and the university’s reputation in danger. Residential education trusts students to be smart about their personal decision, but there are always people who don’t know their limits or can’t control themselves. Most years went by with a few incidents, but last year oblivious freshmen called the ambulance without notifying the school, which resulted in a legally difficult situation. The administration’s solution was to crack down on any dangerous behaviour. Mytorch.tech offers an alternative conflict resolution method, by opening communication channels to resolve conflicts by contacting the person in charge appropriate to the situation in order to avoid unnecessary trouble.
