Everfi Online Trainings (Alcohol EDU and Sexual Assault Prevention for Undergraduates)
These online trainings are required for all incoming undergraduate students prior to their arrival on campus, and they seek to provide information about the importance of values, alcohol and other substances, aspects of healthy/unhealthy relationships, gender socialization, sexual assault, consent, bystander intervention, and student activism.
Bystander Intervention Training Workshops
All incoming and first year students receive a comprehensive training on bystander intervention. Trainings are held in person during the fall semester, and content is created and reviewed by professionals in Health Education Services, as well as students. Content centers on understanding the role of the bystander, developing empathy for those who may have experienced interpersonal violence, developing skills to safely intervene, and consent. All trainings are coordinated by professionals in HES in partnership with other campus offices.
