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 AlcoholEdu, which takes approximately 2 hours, by January 6, 2019. You must earn a grade of 80% or higher to receive credit for the course. 

Sexual Assault Prevention for Undergraduates

The Northwestern community is committed to preventing all forms of violence and promoting a culture of healthy sexuality and relationships through education, support services, and accountability. Every community member has a unique role to play, and contribution to make, towards creating a culture that does not accept sexual and relationship violence. Cultural change occurs by many community members challenging the behaviors and attitudes, which support individuals in perpetrating violence; this includes rape supportive and sexist language, rigid attitudes and beliefs about sexuality and gender, and a lack of active bystanders. Sexual Assault Prevention for Undergraduates (SAPU) will show you how to play an active role in creating positive cultural change.

You are expected to complete Part 1 of SAPU, which takes approximately 1 hour, by January 6, 2019.
