SUPER & SHARE Modules
In September when you arrive for New Student Orientation, you will finally begin to experience all the things that inspired you to choose Stanford. Being away at college as an adult will give you the freedom to explore new experiences, and you will need to make choices to ensure your health, safety and well-being here on the Farm.
Some of these choices may involve whether you engage in alcohol use, romantic relationships, or sexual activity. Living in the dorms brings a shared commitment to the health, welfare, and interests not only of yourself but also of those around you. Regardless of your views about these issues, we want you to have a sophisticated understanding of their complexities and the dynamics that impact each of you as members of our campus community. We want you to make informed and empowered choices so that you can avoid behaviors that may be harmful to you or your peers, and to put you on a path to engage in behaviors that are healthy and safe for you.
To this end, we expect incoming students to complete the following tasks before arriving to campus:
1. You are required to complete AlcoholEdu for College, an online educational course about alcohol use, misuse and their related consequences to you and the larger community. You will also learn skills for helping peers and situations to look out for when alcohol is present.
2. You are required to complete Prescription Drug Abuse Prevention for College, a 30 minute online educational course that offers knowledge, skills, and tools to help students make healthy, informed decisions about prescription medications.
3. You are required to complete Sexual Assault Prevention for Undergraduates, an online educational course about sexual harassment, sexual violence, relationship violence, and stalking. This is conduct prohibited by Stanford’s Title IX policies. This program is intended to help you learn more about these issues and how to play an important role as an “upstander” in keeping our campus safe.
While alcohol or other drug use are never a cause or excuse for sexual and relationship violence, these issues may be correlated in certain circumstances. That is why our offices have collaborated to provide this comprehensive training to all of our incoming students. We want you to understand our community values and your role as essential partners and leaders in creating a healthy, safe, and supportive campus environment. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.
