AlcoholEDU and Sexual Assault Prevention

Sexual Assault Prevention for Undergraduates and Graduates is formerly known as Haven and Haven Plus.

All new students must complete certain health and safety courses, including AlcoholEdu (designed to reduce at-risk drinking behavior) and Sexual Assault Prevention for Undergraduates and Graduates (which help promote healthy behaviors and prevent sexual assault and relationship violence). You take these courses online, starting before you arrive at UB.
