Prevention Education for Students

It takes each one of us to commit to making K College a place where sexual misconduct is not tolerated. In an effort to foster this commitment as educated and engaged members of the K community, all students are expected to participate in a training or educational program related to issues of sexual misconduct, bystander intervention, healthy relationships, and more each year. New students must complete the online course, Every Choice, while returning students have options for completion. Please visit the site specific to you for more information on completing this requirement.

All Kalamazoo College students must complete the Prevention Education requirement by Friday, October 16, 2020 for the 2020-21 academic year. Students who do not complete the training by this date will have a registration hold placed on their student account. The hold will remain in place until the training requirement is met.

All students returning to Kalamazoo College during the 2019-20 year were asked to complete the training by Friday, October 11, 2019.

New Students

It takes each one of us to commit to making K College a place where sexual misconduct is not tolerated. In an effort to foster this commitment as educated and engaged members of the K community, all new K students must complete the online training program, Every Choice. We chose this e-learning program as it not only reviews sexual misconduct behaviors, but focuses on developing skills that will help us all intervene if and when the need arises. Every Choice educates students in an interactive format, with training addressing various issues related to sexual misconduct, gender-based interpersonal violence, and the important role of bystander intervention.

All new K students (including first-year, transfer, and visiting international students) must complete the online Every Choice program by Friday, September 11, 2020. The training should take no longer than an hour, and can be accessed by following these instructions:

  1. Visit the Kalamazoo College Student Success Program Portal.
  2. Enter access code 17kzoo as a new user.
  3. Complete the account setup page. This will allow you to pause the program, and return to finish at a later date.
    o Use your full Kalamazoo College email to register (i.e., Buzz.Hornet20@kzoo.edu)
  4. Complete all sections of the program.
  5. Congratulations! You have successfully completed the training.

Returning Students

Part of Kalamazoo College’s ongoing efforts to address sexual misconduct involves annual education for all students on issues such as our campus policy, bystander intervention, consent, healthy relationships, and examining sexual misconduct through a lens of intersectional identities. We also recognize that each one of us likely prefers to engage in this work in different ways. Therefore, this year returning students will once again have a choice in how they complete this educational requirement. Your options are outlined below.

Returning students are considered to be sophomores, juniors, and seniors who have previously been enrolled at Kalamazoo College.

1. Attend one of the prevention programs offered* during the Fall 2020 quarter on the following topics:

  • Consent and communication
  • Sexual Health at K

*All programming will be offered in a virtual format and details will be shared via campus email during the fall quarter.

2. Complete the Every Choice online training program.

We chose this e-learning program as it not only reviews sexual misconduct behaviors, but focuses on developing skills that will help us all intervene if and when the need arises. This training should take no longer than an hour, and can be completed by following these instructions.
