Launch of Continuing Community Wellness Requirement Expands a Welcoming and Supportive Community
Expanding upon the many existing efforts that educate, inform and raise awareness about sexual and relationship violence, Syracuse University will launch a new annual required online training for returning students to learn more about preventing sexual and relationship violence and provide a refresher on relevant policies and resources. The Continuing Community Wellness Requirement, effective this summer, builds upon the existing required sexual and relationship violence prevention training all incoming students complete in their first year at Syracuse University.
“Fostering a welcoming and supportive community is a result of continuous dedication, support and education, and with this new training opportunity, we add to the network of educational resources available to students centered on sexual and relationship violence prevention” shares Rob Hradsky, Ed.D., vice president for the student experience and co-chair of the Chancellor’s Task Force on Sexual and Relationship Violence. “This training aligns with recommendations made by the Chancellor’s Task Force on Sexual and Relationship Violence and Culture of Respect Campus Collaborative to expand ongoing education on these topics.”
Completing the Fall 2023 Continuing Community Wellness Requirement
Delivered by Catharsis Productions, the “U Got This!” online training consists of three 15-20-minute interactive modules focused on bystander intervention, consent, healthy relationships, sexual assault and harassment, interpersonal violence and more.
This annual requirement will launch Monday, July 17, for all returning full-time undergraduate students enrolled each fall semester. Early action is encouraged. Each of the three modules are required to be completed by Monday, Aug. 14.
Students who do not complete the required “U Got This!” training modules by the deadline will receive a Registration Hold on their account, preventing them from completing spring class registration until the training is complete.
