AlcoholEdu® for College and Sexual Assault Prevention for Undergraduates (SAPU) are objective, science-based, online alcohol abuse and sexual assault prevention programs designed specifically for college students as the cornerstone of a comprehensive campus prevention program.
The purpose of the courses is to prevent or reduce alcohol-related problems and incidents of sexual violence among college students while providing a statistically accurate description of the related attitudes, experiences, behaviors of students. Both courses are key components of Villanova University’s Health Promotion program.
Backed by research:
The first part of AlcoholEdu (Part I) takes roughly 2 hours to complete and can be completed in multiple sittings. Part I of SAPU takes approximately 30 minutes. Students can log in and out of both programs. Part I of each course ends with an exam and survey (for those over age 18). Students must earn a minimum score of 75% or higher to pass and receive credit for completion of the courses. The deadline for incoming first year students to complete Part I of BOTH AlcoholEdu and Haven is August 21, 2019.
The second parts of AlcoholEdu and Haven (Part II) include short modules and a survey. Approximately 45 days after completing Part I of both courses, students will receive an email invitation to return and complete Part II. The deadline to complete Part II of BOTH AlcoholEdu and SAPU is October 11, 2019.
AlcoholEdu® for College and Haven include a number of surveys that measure students’ alcohol-related and sexual violence-related attitudes and behaviors. All survey responses are strictly confidential. Villanova University will only receive information about the first year student body as a whole and will never see individual student responses. Students can feel confident in providing truthful responses to the survey questions. Students who are under age 18 at the time they are taking the course will not receive any of the surveys, but they will still complete the rest of the course curriculum.
AlcoholEdu® for College and SAPU are MANDATORY for all incoming first year students at Villanova University. It is important that every student complete the course to avoid disciplinary consequences through the University.
All instructions will be emailed to incoming students on July 15, 2019. Students CANNOT begin the course until it opens on July 15.

First and foremost, we congratulate you for choosing to abstain. There are many other students at Villanova who are making the same choice - in fact, more than half of you are non-drinkers!
However, it is important to recognize that students are affected by their peers’ decisions around alcohol during their Villanova experience. It is important that every student is equipped with accurate and credible information about alcohol so that they can make safer, responsible choices for themselves and encourage their peers to do the same. Chances are that, even if you do not drink, you will encounter someone who does. And, we know that more than 70% of sexual assaults on college campuses involve alcohol. If you think about it, the information in AlcoholEdu® and Haven could help to save a life, keep someone from getting hurt, or reduce someone’s risk for poor academic performance as a result of alcohol use. AlcoholEdu® for College and Haven are key elements of this support for healthy choices.
