About the courses

As you may know, alcohol can be a significant issue in the lives of college students – from decisions on whether you should drink if offered it, to the negative second hand impacts that can come from someone else’s consumption. In fact, it is likely that whether or not you choose to drink, you will eventually know someone who does.  We want every student joining the Carolina community to have an appropriate and accurate understanding of alcohol and its associated risks, including legal, judicial and health impacts.  UNC Chapel Hill supports efforts to prevent underage alcohol use, high-risk drinking and alcohol abuse on our campus, and has joined with many top Universities in implementing AlcoholEdu as a part of our alcohol education and abuse prevention initiatives.

As noted above, this online module – including the two surveys we ask you to complete as part of it – is completely confidential.  No response you include in the survey will ever be connected back to you personally.  The Everfi company that provides AlcoholEdu will compile all anonymous answers from each student into an aggregate data report for our Student Wellness staff to use in measuring the effectiveness of the course, and in developing additional education resources and programming for campus.  However, if you would still prefer not to answer some questions on the anonymous survey, you can choose to leave them blank and that will not impact your completed status for the overall module.





UNC Chapel Hill has joined with many top schools in adopting and implementing EverFi's Haven: Understanding Sexual Assault as a part of Carolina’s sexual violence prevention initiatives.  The University is committed to providing an inclusive and welcoming environment for all members of our community.  It is the responsibility of every employee and student in the University community to foster an environment free of discrimination, harassment (including sexual or gender-based harassment and sexual violence), interpersonal violence, and stalking.  The University encourages all community members to take reasonable and prudent actions to prevent or stop an act of harassment or violence. This online module introduces students to the dynamics of sexual assault and how to prevent it from happen to their peers through bystander intervention. Students can learn more about bystander intervention once they arrive on campus by attending One Act or One Act for Greeks skills trainings.

Please note that the course includes surveys that offer you feedback on your attitudes and behaviors.  All survey responses are strictly confidential– no one except you will be able to see what you reported.  The University will only receive information about the student body as a whole.  Your participation in the surveys is entirely voluntary and you will not be penalized for nonparticipation.  If you would prefer not to answer some or all of these questions, you can choose to leave them blank, but we hope you’ll answer all questions as completely as you can. The information you provide will help us evaluate the effectiveness of the course.  Once you respond to the survey, you will not have the opportunity to delete the information from the Haven database at any future time.

We know that learning more about this topic can be difficult, and incoming students are encouraged to access campus resources (confidential or private) as they feel comfortable.
