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.
Sexual Assault Prevention for Undergraduates (SAPU): We promote student health and safety through the use of SAPU, a program that educates students about the elements of healthy relationships, the importance of sexual consent, and the role of bystanders.
Frequently Asked Questions
Why are new undergraduate, graduate, law and transfer students expected to complete it?
It is common practice for universities to offer online educational modules for students as they enter the institution. Our goal is for all students who enter DePaul University to have similar base knowledge about sexual & relationship violence and alcohol and drug use so they can make informed choices. We will build on the knowledge learned in these modules throughout a student's time at DePaul, continuing to reinforce the Take Care DePaul message.
