AlcoholEdu: Summer Online TND

Required for all incoming students (freshmen and transfer students)

As members of the Northwestern community we share a responsibility for promoting healthy behaviors that minimize harm to our self and others, foster an environment in which we can all live and learn, and support every community members’ health and well-being. Alcohol misuse can get in the way of this responsibility. Northwestern University is mindful in making sure that drinking –your own or somebody else’s –does not interfere with anyone’s health, safety, academic success, and ability to thrive.

To build a healthy knowledgeable community, we require ALL first-year and transfer students – whether they choose to consume alcohol or not –to complete AlcoholEdu for College. This experience will provide you with harm reduction strategies and help you make a plan for how – or if – alcohol will play a role during your time at Northwestern.

You are expected to complete Part 1 of the course, which takes approximately 2 hours, by September 5, 2016. You must earn a grade of 80% or higher to receive credit for the course. About 45 days after you complete Part 1, you will receive an email asking you to complete Part 2, which takes approximately 15 minutes.
