AlcoholEdu for College

Each year the University of Oregon implements an online alcohol abuse prevention program known as AlcoholEdu for College. The confidential and personalized program comes in two parts. Because the University of Oregon cares about students' health, safety, and academic success, the University REQUIRES every incoming first-year/freshman and transfer student under the age of 21 to complete AlcoholEdu for College.

The University of Oregon has joined other top schools in the country in offering AlcoholEdu for College. Whether or not your student drinks alcohol, the program will empower your student to make well-informed decisions about alcohol, link their choices about drinking/not drinking to academic and personal success, help them better cope with the drinking behavior of peers, and gain an accurate understanding of the concept and role of “consent,” as it relates to healthy sexual relationships. Our goal is to reduce the negative consequences of alcohol misuse and abuse on the campus, and reduce the incidents of unwanted sexual behavior.
 
AlcoholEdu is not a lecture about alcohol. Rather, it is a program for college students who are thoughtful about life choices or who have a shared commitment to the health and welfare of others. The strategic intervention, aimed at individuals, uses online knowledge tests and surveys to assess changes in knowledge, attitudes, and alcohol-related behaviors. Ultimately, AlcoholEdu for College will provide the University with a comprehensive alcohol prevention program for the student population.
