More About Haven

Haven is an online course that addresses the critical issues of sexual assault, relationship violence, and stalking specifically on college campuses. The Federal Government has made sexual violence education and prevention mandatory for all incoming students in institutions who receive federal funds. Oregon State University’s goal is to make all OSU students aware of how sexual violence is perpetrated and perpetuated and also provide students with a common language so we, as a community, can continue the conversation of sexual violence. All OSU students are part of our campus community and therefore part of the change that we seek to initiate with Haven.

More About AlcoholEdu

Whether students choose to drink or not, the reality is that they will encounter alcohol at some point during their time at Oregon State University—which is why the university has required first-year students to take AlcoholEdu.

AlcoholEdu is an online course that focuses on the impact alcohol has on students’ mind and body and also empowers students to make well-informed decisions about alcohol. This program is not a lecture or a “just say no” program, but rather a program that gives students the information they need to be safe and make informed choices with alcohol.

Course Structure for AlcoholEdu and Haven

Both AlcoholEdu and Haven are two-part courses with a 30-day waiting period in between each part. Check your ONID email for your specific due dates for each part of the course. Below is the course structure for AlcoholEdu and Haven:
