The University utilizes Everfi, an online program with different learning modules, to educates students about alcohol use, sexual respect, and bystander intervention skills. All incoming students are required to participate in this program to ensure that there is a baseline of information for the incoming students about these important topics. Following the online education material, the University provides in-person educational follow-ups to all students.

Regardless of whether or not a person uses alcohol or engages in intimate relationships, the program is designed to allow participants multiple pathways to move through the course and learn different ways they can help their friends in these topical areas.

Alcohol Edu

“Whether they are abstainers, moderate drinkers, or heavy drinkers, each student receives relevant content, personalized feedback and practical strategies that are appropriate for their needs. And, regardless of their path, every student receives a base level education on alcohol, since even an abstainer may try alcohol at some point” (Everfi, 2018).

Topical areas covered:

  • Standard Drink
  • Where Do You Stand?
  • Goal Setting
  • Drinking & Motivation
  • Brain & Body
  • Developing an Action Plan
  • Laws & Policies
  • Helping Friends

Sexual Assault Prevention

1 in 4 students will experience a sexual assault.  The University believes that all students play an active part in understanding the implications of sexual misconduct and how they can be part of prevention.  While many students receive this education during their high school years, the information is important to cover as students embark on a new journey and experience living differently than they may be used to.

Topical areas covered:

  • Values, Identities, and Relationships
  • Gender Identities and Stereotypes
  • Sexual Harassment and Stalking
  • Consent, Coercion, and Bystander Intervention
