Drake University strives to create a respectful, safe, and non-threatening environment where its members are able to live, study, and work free from sexual and interpersonal misconduct. In keeping with this goal, Drake is requiring all students to complete an online educational program on sexual and interpersonal violence prevention. This effort also complies with the Violence Against Women Act and the Office for Civil Rights federal guidelines. Students want to live and learn within a campus community that is safe and respectful, so keeping Drake a safe space is a responsibility we all share.
We are using a convenient online format through Everfi’s Sexual Assault Prevention™ , designed to help inform and educate students on these important issues.
Because of the importance of its content, this course is required for ALL students at Drake. Students may not register for the spring semester until it is completed. Please complete the online educational program to avoid having a hold put on your registration.
The training contains sensitive material involving sexual and interpersonal violence. While trigger warnings and resources are provided throughout the program, we understand such programming may be problematic for some viewers. Please contact the Violence Prevention Coordinator at Lynne.Cornelius@drake.edu for support and/or to discuss alternatives for training.
Please note: you will not receive a waiver based on a high level of knowledge of this topic or previous training participation.
Two follow-up email will be sent to those that have not enrolled, have enrolled, but not completed the Sexual Assault Prevention online course by the middle of September for a reminder.
After you complete the post-quiz, there is 45-day waiting period before you can access the follow-up survey (Part 2.) Part 2 is encouraged, but not part of the requirement.
If you choose to take Part 2, it may be completed at any time before the end of the Fall semester. Students who complete Part 2 by finals week of the fall semester will be entered in a drawing for a gift card for merchandise at the University Bookstore.
