AlcoholEdu for College
At the University of Central Missouri we expect every freshman under the age of 24 at UCM to take AlcoholEdu for College, an online alcohol prevention program; our goal is to ensure that students have a successful experience that leads to earning a meaningful degree to start them on a prosperous career path. One way we do this is by educating all new first year students about alcohol – how it affects the mind and body, and how it can impact your college success.
AlcoholEdu is designed to provide the latest information about alcohol and its effects on the body and mind.The course is personalized to meet each student's needs. It is designed to consider the students previous alcohol education, choices regarding alcohol, and their gender to provide alcohol education that will be most beneficial for the individual.
This program is created to:
- Motivate behavior change
- Reset unrealistic expectations about the effects of alcohol
- Link choices about drinking to academic and personal success
- Help students practice safer decision-making
- Engage students to create a healthier campus community
The course includes four chapters of content, interactive exercises, and assessments of alcohol-related knowledge, attitudes and behaviors. It’s split up into two parts: Part 1 must be completed before the student arrives on campus. Part 2 will be completed 45 days after the student completes Part 1.
