Sexual Violence Prevention
Sexual Assault Prevention for Undergraduates and Graduate Students
Arkansas Tech has partnered with EverFi, whose mission is to help students address critical life skills, in high schools and higher education institutions across the country. EverFi provides a program called Sexual Assault Prevention for Undergraduates to help incoming students understand the issues related to sexual violence. Sexual Assault Prevention for Undergraduates relies on proven prevention theories and educational strategies to increase student awareness of sexual misconduct and is designed to assist us in meeting legal requirements and guidance issued by the U.S. Department of Education’s Office of Civil Rights and the White House Task Force to Protect Students from Sexual Assault. Each year over a half million students complete these courses nationwide. All new first year and transfer students are required to complete this course. This course is part of an ongoing and proactive educational campaign aimed at keeping students safe and well-informed.
EverFi also provides a program called Sexual Assault Prevention for Graduate Students, a tailored sexual assault prevention training for post-baccalaureate student groups including graduate/professional students and adult learners. All new graduate students are required to complete Sexual Assault Prevention for Graduate Students online.
