More about Sexual Assault Prevention

Sexual Assault Prevention is an online sexual violence awareness and prevention course. USU provides Sexual Assault Prevention as part of a federal mandate under the Campus SaVe Act for all students to learn about sexual violence. These regulations are enforced by the U.S. Department of Education.

Nationally, one in five college women will experience some form of non-consensual sexual activity by graduation. Additionally, one in 71 men will be raped at some point in their lives.

The widespread impact of sexual violence on students presents an urgent and pressing challenge for our nation's campuses. Sexual Assault Prevention – Understanding Sexual Assault addresses the critical issues of sexual assault, relationship violence, and stalking, which impact countless college students across the country.

Sexual Assault Prevention uses a population-level approach to educate all students on the issues associated with sexual assault and relationship violence, taking into account their unique perspectives and experiences, providing:

  • Key definitions and statistics
  • Reflective and personalized content
  • Bystander skill and confidence-building strategies
  • Campus-specific policies, procedures and resources
  • Rich data summaries to inform future programming

More about AlcoholEdu

AlcoholEdu for College is an educational online course about alcohol and other drug safety. It’s completely confidential and individual student responses about alcohol and other drug behavior are not accessible by USU or any other party. The course helps students develop healthy lifestyle habits that will benefit them the rest of their lives.

A federally funded, 30-campus randomized control trial found that AlcoholEdu reduces high-risk drinking and alcohol-related harms among college students. The program motivates behavior change by:

  • Resetting unrealistic expectations about the effects of alcohol
  • Linking choices about drinking to academic and personal success
  • Helping students practice safer decision-making
  • Engaging students to create a healthier campus community
