AlcoholEdu: DePaul is one of hundreds of institutions nationwide requiring every member of their first year class to complete AlcoholEdu each year – a non-opinionated, science-based course taken by hundreds of thousands of students each year. Whether or not a student drinks, AlcoholEdu empowers students to make well-informed decisions and provides some simple strategies to help keep them and their friends safe.
We promote student health and safety through the use of Haven, a program that educates students about the elements of healthy relationships, the importance of sexual consent, and the role of bystanders.
