Training & Education
Online Prevention Training
Alcohol Wise Online Course: We strive to create a community that values respect, and guides students toward making positive lifestyle choices. We have seen the misuse of alcohol affect the academic success of our students and want to help you avoid this and other consequences. Whether you choose to drink alcohol or not, there is valuable information in Alcohol Wise. You will have the opportunity to become more aware about how alcohol affects the body, and learn how to recognize signs of distress in others. The course also includes pertinent information about social responsibility as it relates to the campus community.
Not Anymore - Online Sexual Violence Education
Course: All Illinois State University students are asked to complete an annual online prevention module that addresses unwanted sexual experiences including sexual assault and sexual harassment, sexual consent, relationship and dating violence, and stalking behaviors. The program for all Illinois State University students has been the Consent and Respect program, and in August of 2018 a Not Anymore through Student Success will be introduced. Individuals registered for 1 or more hours of academic course work will be invited to take the new online course.
