- Alcohol EDU & HAVEN Requirement:
AlcoholEdu & Haven Requirement:
As part of our commitment to overall campus wellness, AlcoholEdu and Haven are comprehensive prevention programs that UNC Pembroke expects all new students to complete. Having all new students complete AlcoholEdu and Haven is how UNCP meets federal requirements for quality education (i.e., Safe and Drug Free Schools and Community Act, Title IV from the U.S. Department of Education and Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act PL 103-322) and ensures that all students on and off campus are given resources to enhance their lives—whether that be fostering personal life skills or helping students understand how they might help friends, family members, or peers.
AlcoholEdu and Haven for College – Everfi are online, non-opinionated, science-based alcohol abuse and sexual assault prevention courses. Whether you use alcohol or not, AlcoholEdu will empower you to make well-informed decisions about alcohol and help you better cope with the alcohol use behavior of your peers. To find out more information about out two online prevention programs, log onto: http://everfi.com/higher-education-old/alcoholedu/ or https://everfi.com/higher-education-old/haven/.
You will receive an email on January 8 from our AlcoholEdu/Haven Coordinator, Kathryn Kelly. The email will announce that you may begin AlcoholEdu and Haven online programs. The courses have two sections, both of which must be completed to fulfill this requirement and register for future classes at UNCP. Deadlines for completion will be included in the email from the AlcoholEdu/Haven Coordinator.
AlcoholEdu and Haven both take approximately 2.5 – 3 hours to complete, and we recommend that you take the courses in multiple sittings. A grade of 70 or higher is required for successful completion of AlcoholEdu; if you do not receive at least a 70, you may return to the course and complete a retest. Haven does not require a passing score, but completion of all courses modules is required.
For further information regarding our online campus wellness programs (AlcoholEdu or Haven), contact Kathryn Kelly at Counseling and Psychological Services at 910.521.6202 or by email at Kathryn.Kelly@uncp.edu.
