Student Sexual Misconduct Prevention Training

As part of our comprehensive health and safety program, USU requires all students who are enrolled in a non-certificate degree-granting program for 6 credit hours or more per semester to participate in a sexual misconduct prevention training each academic year. These trainings will empower students to make informed decisions about issues that affect our USU community.

The following student groups are required to participate in additional sexual misconduct prevention and bystander intervention training each academic year: leaders of student organizations, members of fraternities and sororities, and student-athletes.

Questions about the student sexual misconduct prevention training requirements can be directed to prevention@usu.edu.

Additional Prevention Training

Incoming undergraduate students under 25 years old are also encouraged to take the online course AlcoholEdu for College through Everfi. AlcoholEdu will take approximately 60-90 minutes to complete and can be accessed by logging in with your A number and USU password at admin.fifoundry.net/utah_state_university.

Questions about AlcoholEdu can be sent to Ryan Barfuss, Student Health & Wellness Center Prevention Specialist, at ryan.barfuss@usu.edu.
