Sexual Assault Prevention for Undergraduates

The Sexual Assault Prevention for Undergraduates course is provided through the WVU Office of Equity Assurance, in the Division of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion. We assist students, staff, and faculty with issues related to Title IX.

Built in collaboration with leading researchers and practitioners, the Sexual Assault Prevention for Undergraduates course combines cutting-edge instructional design and rich media to educate students about healthy relationships, the importance of consent, and the role of bystander intervention. Interactive exercises take students through real-world scenarios and encourage students to challenge sexist language and attitudes, provide guidance for supporting someone who has experienced harm, and promote healthy relationships based on positive communication and respect—empowering students to create safe, healthy campus environments.

Who is Required to Take Sexual Assault Prevention for Undergraduates?

  • First year students
  • Transfer students

Please note: If you have taken Sexual Assault Prevention for Undergraduates before at another institution, including WVU branch campuses, you are still required to complete the course.

WVU Peer Advocates

Get involved and make a difference

West Virginia University signed onto the national It’s On Us campaign in 2015 to continue violence prevention efforts and reinforce Mountaineers’ rights under Title IX.

Under the It’s On Us campaign, the University coordinates the WVU Peer Advocate program. Through this initiative, expertly trained students work to end sexual assault and power-based personal violence on campus through immediate crisis intervention and prevention awareness events.

Any student is welcome and encouraged to become a WVU Peer Advocate and can become involved by contacting a Title IX Education Specialist.
