Course Description

Preparing students to succeed post-graduation means equipping them now with the skills and knowledge to identify and intervene when they witness unsafe or unhealthy behavior with friends or coworkers. Research shows that the most effective prevention education requires messaging that is tailored to diverse populations and delivered across the student lifecycle.

EVERFI’s Sexual Assault Prevention Suite is a comprehensive education solution that engages students as they progress, fostering healthy relationships and preparing them to recognize and respond to sexual assault and harassment when it occurs.

Sexual Assault Prevention for Community College addresses preventing sexual assault and harassment on campus, in the workplace, and at home. Learners will learn about relationship abuse in established or long-term relationships, financial abuse, specific concerns students with children may face, and how to support loved ones who have experienced trauma. This course reflects training requirements outlined in the 2020 Title IX changes.

There is an additional post-course, follow-up survey (which mirrors the pre-course survey) that is assigned as a separate learning activity and considered Part 2. EVERFI recommends assigning Part 2 of the course 30-45 days after the learner completes Part 1.

This 30-45 day intersession period allows learners to process the information from the course, start putting their new knowledge and skills into practice, and become more acclimated to their environment. This enables the Part 2 follow-up survey to assess changes in learner attitudes and behaviors, as well as the impact of the school or organization environment.

Automated Assignments can be used to implement an intersession.
