We are excited to have you join us this Fall for a productive and engaging academic year. At USC, we are dedicated to creating a campus culture driven by student wellbeing and setting you up for greater success both as a student and as a member of the Trojan Family here and beyond.
This is supported by a learning environment that fosters safe and healthy relationships among our students in online and on-campus settings. Safe and healthy relationships are created when we develop personal skills related to complex aspects of student life. At USC, one of the ways we do this is to require the completion of prevention education through the following online modules: AlcoholEdu for College, Sexual Assault Prevention, Staying Safe, and the Trojans Respect Consent workshop. In the following months, we will be adding a Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion online module.
Additionally, USC has an online module called Mental Well-being for Students that we encourage all students to take and become familiar with as a way to manage stress, anxiety, and other common experiences in academic life.
The table below displays all prevention education offerings:
*Incoming students enrolled in an online graduate degree program are not required to complete the Staying Safe education course.
Noncompliance with these requirements can result in a registration hold for the following semester.
All of these learning opportunities are designed to help you with:
- Supporting your peers and yourself when faced with tough situations
- Reflecting on your knowledge, attitudes, and experiences related to these issues
- Developing critical skills to make thoughtful choices inside and outside the classroom
Access to these course(s) are available in MyUSC through TrojanLearn. Your completion of these prevention education requirements creates a common knowledge and shared expectation for our campus communities.
Thank you for your support in maintaining a safe, healthy, and supportive community for members of the Trojan Family at USC as we live, work, and learn all over the world.
