Sexual Assault Prevention

Kennesaw State University is committed to providing a safe and welcoming campus community. Education is an important component in equipping students, faculty, staff and community members with the tools to reach this goal.

Beginning in Summer Semester 2015, all new students at Kennesaw State University will be required to complete an interactive online educational program.

Effective Summer 2019, the program is titled Sexual Assault Prevention and will cover sensitive issues surrounding interpersonal violence prevention. Topics covered include: consent, sexual assault, alcohol, dating and domestic violence, stalking, healthy relationships and bystander intervention. Graduate students are required to take the graduate version of Sexual Assault Prevention. 

Undergraduate students are also required to complete Alcohol Edu. Alcohol Edu is a one-hour, online, and interactive educational program that provides useful, research-based information to help students make healthy decisions and develop healthy lifestyle habits that will last a lifetime. 

The Sexual Assault Prevention and Alcohol Edu educational programs must be completed prior to the student’s registration for the next academic term. The program provides closed caption and audio description availability. Students can access these options by clicking the “CC” and/or “AD” buttons at the bottom of each module.
