Illinois State University chooses to provide prevention based modules like 3rd Millennium Classroom's Alcohol Wise because we prioritize our students wellbeing. The misuse of alcohol has been proven to negatively impact the academic success and the overall well-being of college aged individuals. The Alcohol Wise course contains information discussing what moderate alcohol use looks like, how to avoid high risk drinking patterns and the consequences associated, and how to better recognize individuals who are in distress. The course also includes pertinent information about the students' role in being a responsible member of the Illinois State University community. Whether you choose to drink alcohol or not, there is very valuable information and resources in Alcohol Wise.
Consent and Respect
All Illinois State students registered for one of more credit hours are offered and asked to complete the Consent and Respect module which addresses complexities around unwanted sexual experiences. Content empowering individuals to help others is also included in the Consent and Respect module. Evidence shows that when individuals have confidence in their skills as active bystanders they are better able to disrupt harmful situations. This type of programming allows our students to further understand how they can be an integral part of addressing gender-based violence.
