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 continue that dialogue, all Kalamazoo College 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 specific information on completing this requirement.

All Kalamazoo College students must complete this requirement by Friday, October 12. Students who 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.

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 continue that dialogue, 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. Kalamazoo College chose Every Choice to educate students about issues surrounding sexual misconduct, and bystander intervention. In an interactive format, the training addresses an array of issues related to sexual misconduct and how we all play an important role in preventing these behaviors.

All new K students (includes first-year, transfer, and visiting international) must complete the online training program by Friday, September 4, 2019. The training should take no longer than an hour, and can be reached 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 (ie. Buzz.Hornet18@kzoo.edu)
  4. Complete all sections of the program.
  5. Congratulations! You have successfully completed the training.

Returning Students

Part of Kalmazoo College’s ongoing efforts to address sexual misconduct here on campus involves annual education for all students on issues such as our campus policy, bystander intervention, consent, healthy relationships, and sexual misconduct as it intersects with other 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 have a choice in how they complete this educational requirement. Your options are outlined below.
