AlcoholEdu and Haven
Many students at Santa Clara University choose not to drink alcohol. Other students consume alcohol responsibly, and some make poor decisions and misuse or abuse alcohol. Last year, over 130 students at SCU received medical attention due to the misuse of alcohol, and a number of those students were transported to the hospital. Complying with the law by abstaining from the use of alcohol until you are at least 21 years of age is the most responsible choice. However, if you choose to use alcohol now or some time in the future, learning more about alcohol can help you to make decisions that keep you on a path of success and good health.
Sexual assault is another issue that greatly affects the entire campus community. Studies have shown that nationally, one in four female college students will experience some form of nonconsensual sexual activity by graduation, and that 50 percent of reported sexual assaults on college campuses across the country involve alcohol. Santa Clara University is committed to fostering a culture in which students are empowered and effective when they witness or suspect any kind of sexual assault or relationship violence.
Santa Clara University is committed to the welfare of our students and to educating and empowering students to help us create a safer campus. One way in which we do this is by educating all incoming students about alcohol, sexual assault, and relationship violence. To this end, we require every first-year student at Santa Clara University to complete the online alcohol education and sexual assault prevention programs, AlcoholEdu for College and Haven.
The courses include several surveys that measure students’ attitudes and behaviors about alcohol and relationships. All survey responses are strictly confidential; Santa Clara University will only receive information about the student body as whole and will never see an individual student’s answers. You can feel confident that providing truthful answers—no matter what they are—will not put you at any risk for repercussions.
