Completing AlcoholEdu and Haven
The University of North Carolina Asheville partners with EverFi to educate its student population on understanding the risks associated with alcohol consumption and understanding sexual assault. EverFi teaches and assesses students in critical skills needed for successfully navigating their college career.
UNC Asheville has an obligation to provide primary prevention and awareness programs for its incoming students, and comply with Title IX, Clery Act, and Department of Education requirements. AlcoholEdu and Haven helps us to fulfill these requirements.
All incoming students are expected to complete AlcoholEdu and Haven prior to arriving on campus in August. Students will receive an invitation email to access and begin the module. The email contains log-in instructions, the registration code, and how to resolve technical issues.
AlcoholEdu for College
Alcohol consumption on a college campus can be a significant issue for students. Decisions surrounding alcohol consumption may range from whether to drink or not, to experiencing the negative impacts of consumption or experiencing the impact of someone else’s consumption of alcohol. Therefore, UNC Asheville supports and encourages the prevention of underage alcohol use, high risk consumption, binge drinking, and alcohol abuse. The implementation of AlcoholEdu is a key component of our alcohol education and prevention initiatives.
Contained within the module is a survey; the survey is optional but completely confidential. No responses will be connected to you. You may elect to complete the survey and skip certain questions. We do encourage our students to complete the survey because results provide the university with valuable information on how we can better serve the needs of our students.
AlcoholEdu for College is an interactive online program designed to reduce the negative consequences of alcohol amongst students. It is the most widely used alcohol prevention program in higher education.
Haven: Understanding Sexual Assault
UNC Asheville seeks to provide a safe and inclusive campus for all students. Every student, staff, and faculty member of UNC Asheville is tasked with the responsibility of providing an environment free of interpersonal violence, stalking, discrimination, sexual or gender based harassment and sexual violence. Haven is an online module which introduces participants to the dynamics of sexual assault and how to prevent such occurrences through bystander intervention.
Haven contains a survey that allows you to provide feedback on your attitudes and behaviors. All responses are strictly confidential, and no one except you will see what you reported. The university only receives collective information about the student body as a whole. Participation in the survey is completely optional and voluntary. You may also complete portions of the survey and leave certain questions blank. We hope that you will complete the survey because your results allow us to evaluate the effectiveness of the course and gauge the climate of our campus to ensure safety for all.
