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.
