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.

The NCAA sexual violence policy requires annual training in sexual violence, hazing, and bullying prevention for all student-athletes. In this course, student athletes explore their role in creating and maintaining a culture free from sexual violence and other misconduct.

Module 3: Positive Relationships, Strong Communities

In this module, the learner reflects on the different types of relationships they have with people in their lives and how they can be supported through active listening. Active listening techniques are also introduced as a way to support those they know who may be experiencing sexual harassment, bullying, or other negative experiences. Through interactive scenarios, the learner is able to apply these skills and practice intervention techniques. They are also informed on several relevant pieces of legislation, including Title IX, that provides protections to them and their peers, in addition to NCAA guidelines.

Module 4: Uniting Against Sexual Violence and Misconduct

In this module, sexual violence is defined and differentiated from sexual harassment. The learner is presented with the idea of consent, and explores the multi-faceted impact of trauma on targets of sexual harassment and violence. With this context, they are then presented with strategies to support survivors and targets, and apply these strategies in interactive scenarios. They also explore the concepts of intimate partner violence and stalking, and how to appropriately and safely intervene. Lastly, they are presented with several options for reporting these incidents — both on campus, and in their local community.

Module 6: Summary

  • Post-Course Exam

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.
