AlcoholEdu for College

At DU, we value the health and safety of our community especially when it comes to using alcohol or other drugs (AOD). This course is designed to educate you about how alcohol and drugs affect the brain and body, the range of substance use behaviors and relationships, AOD laws and policies, and how to respond in AOD-related situations. You will also hear college student's perspectives throughout the course.

If you would like to request an exemption from this course due to recovery status or personal alcohol and other drug reasons, please contact hcc.thrive@du.edu. You do not need to disclose your experiences, but can indicate that you would like to be exempt for personal reasons, and we may follow up with resources upon granting exemption.

Sexual Assault Prevention for Undergraduates

Best practice tells us that ongoing education is the best way to help students learn new skills and create a culture change toward the eradication of gender violence on college campuses. As a result, the Health and Counseling Center has partnered with different campus areas to provide multi-dose and multi-platform programs to help students build their skills and expertise. This course serves as that first step.

Statistics tell us that some students coming to DU have already, in some way, been impacted by gender violence. If completing Sexual Assault Prevention for Undergraduates could be activating for you, we invite you to contact CAPE@du.edu. You do not need to disclose your experience, but can indicate that you would like to be exempt for personal reasons. One of the confidential advocates from CAPE will reach out to you with resources and information.

Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion for Students

Both as a long-standing value of the University, and especially given current events in the US and beyond, it is important for the DU community to deepen our understanding of self, others, and how we more intentionally interact across similarity and difference. Along with a complementary Canvas module, this Everfi session provides some information, reflection opportunities, and skills to help students better understand and navigate the social systems at and beyond DU.
