Over the next few years at West Virginia University Institute of Technology, you will grow and change with help from the people you will meet and because of our campus culture. Because we take every part of your WVU Tech experience seriously, we have several programs to helps our students live the safest, healthiest lives possible. We expect all new students to complete two science-based online programs: AlcoholEDU for College and Sexual Assault Prevention for Undergraduates.
In addition, we encourage parents to talk to their students about these important topics. These conversations have the potential to positively shape student decision making in these areas now and for years forward.
AlcoholEDU for College
Whether or not you consume alcohol, AlcoholEDU for College will empower you to make well-informed decisions about alcohol and help you better cope with the drinking behavior of peers.
AlcoholEDU has two (2) parts and incorporates the latest evidence-based prevention methods to create a highly engaging user experience. This online course is used by more than 500 campuses and by 36% of all first-year students as American’s four-year higher education institutions, and is the only program proven to reduce negative alcohol-related behavior.
Sexual Assault Prevention for Undergraduates
Sexual Assault Prevention for Undergraduates is geared toward helping create a safe environment for you and other students by focusing on Title IX and sexual violence education. This online course combines cutting-edge instructional design and rich media to educate students about healthy relationships, the importance of consent, and the role of bystander intervention.
In the course you will examine the connected issues of hooking up, substance abuse, sexual violence, and health relationships through a variety of interactive, realistic scenarios and guided self-reflection.
