Prevention Education for Students

Kalamazoo College is committed to providing an environment that is free from unlawful gender discrimination and sexual misconduct in all its forms. The College engages in comprehensive, intentional, and integrated programming, initiatives, strategies, and campaigns intended to promote the awareness of and to prevent sexual harassment, dating violence, domestic violence, sexual assault, stalking, and sexual exploitation. Effective prevention and meaningful, supportive response require that each of us commit to fostering a climate that values respect, dignity, support, safety, and fairness. To that end, all students are expected to participate in annual prevention training or educational programs related to issues of sexual misconduct, bystander intervention, healthy relationships, and more. 

New Students: First year and transfer students are required to complete their first year orientation awareness and prevention programs and the online program U Got This! As part of the College’s commitment to creating a culture of support and safety, Kalamazoo College is partnering with Catharsis to bring you the “U Got This” online program. Students who do not complete the training may have a registration hold placed on their student account. The hold will remain in place until the training requirement is met. 

Returning Students: Returning students are expected to complete three online Moodle modules provided through the Division of Student Development: Communicating Consent (Fall Quarter); Healthy Relationships (Winter Quarter); and Bystander Intervention (Spring Quarter). Students will find these assignments on their College Moodle Dashboard. We also recognize that each one of us likely prefers to engage in this work in different ways. Each quarter, Student Development offers in-person programs that may be attended in lieu of completing the corresponding online Moodle module for that quarter.
