ALCOHOL EDU & SEXUAL ASSAULT PREVENTION - MANDATORY ONLINE PROGRAM
AlcoholEdu and Sexual Assault Prevention are mandatory online programs that must be completed prior to Orientation. AlcoholEdu is a nationally recognized program and 36% of all first year students at America's four-year institutions participate. AlcoholEdu is designed for all students, whether you are a frequent drinker or a non-drinker. This educational tool will help prepare you for college life and will provide the University with important data on alcohol behaviors which can help Chatham gain grants and offer better program opportunities for students.
With data from the National Institute of Justice showing that one in five college women (and one in 16 men) will experience some form of non-consensual sexual activity by graduation, the widespread impact of sexual violence on students presents an urgent and pressing challenge for our nation's campuses. Sexual Assault Prevention addresses the critical issues of sexual assault, relationship violence, and stalking, which impact countless college students across the country.
All students will receive an introductory e-mail in July along with instructions for completing the course. You must complete the first phase of the course by January 3rd before beginning orientation.
STUDENT HONOR CODE
Honor is that principle by which we at Chatham form our code of living, working, and studying together. The standards of honor at Chatham require that all Chatham students act with intellectual independence, personal integrity, honesty in all relationships, and consideration for the rights and well-being of others. As citizens of the campus community focused on education, students must accept certain obligations that accrue by virtue of such citizenship. Consequently, students must adhere to community standards in accordance with the University's mission and expectations.
Individual rights are ensured to the degree that these rights require a respect for the rights of all within the community to the same extent. In accepting admission to Chatham University, undergraduate and graduate students automatically agree to be personally responsible in all matters pertaining to honor and pledge to abide by those rules, which are considered by the community, as part of its Honor Code.
While the University articulates specific community standards, both academic and social, the Honor Code is maintained through the acceptance of personal responsibility by each community member in their on and off campus behavior. This code has been established in order to protect a specialized environment conducive to learning which fosters shared responsibility, integrity, academic success, personal and professional growth, and responsible citizenship.
