Required Trainings

As part of UO’s comprehensive approach to alcohol education and sexual violence prevention, it is required that all new incoming students complete two online programs: AlcoholEdu and Haven. Your ability to learn is enhanced when you are a member of a safe and healthy community. Being impacted by behaviors of those who misuse and abuse alcohol or are involved in some form of sexual misconduct can all be significant barriers to academic success. Our goal is to reduce the negative consequences of alcohol misuse and abuse on campus as well as the incidents of unwanted sexual behavior.

You can log in and access AlcoholEdu and Haven.

International Student Training Videos

The Sexual Violence Prevention and Education team partnered with International Affairs to create educational videos created by, and featuring, student leaders that outline definitions of sexual and dating violence under the University of Oregon Student Conduct Code and Oregon law. These videos provide examples of problematic behaviors, and detail the campus and community resources available to students. They are also intended to introduce international students to the University of Oregon’s expectations for student conduct related to sexual violence and are available in English with Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, and Korean subtitles. These videos are currently used in peer mentor training and have been incorporated into the health and safety curriculum for the American English Institute at the UO.
