Education Modules for New Students

"UMD is a remarkable place. As its current leader and an alumni myself, I have a unique appreciation for how far we have come in helping students understand what life at college will entail and in giving them the tools they need to succeed in and outside of the classroom. UMD has invested considerable time, talent and resources in well being. We want to make the student life experience here well-rounded, safe and healthy."

Before they begin their studies at UMD, every new undergraduate student is required to complete AlcoholEdu for College, a 2-3 hour online course that uses the latest prevention techniques and research to educate students about the impact of alcohol on the mind and body.  Whether or not your student drinks alcohol, AlcoholEdu for College will empower your student to make well-informed decisions about alcohol and help them better cope with the drinking behavior of peers.

Minnesota State Law requires that every incoming student must participate in training on sexual assault prevention. One way all of our students (undergraduate, graduate, and professional) will receive training is through another online course called Sexual Assault Prevention.

Our partner for providing the online education courses is a company called Vector Solutions. We’re providing you with a link to a Vector Solutions website that has information for parents of college students.  The site includes downloadable resources to support conversations with your student about these important topics.
