AlcoholEdu / Haven

Students take course now buttonDear Class of 2018,

As a new member of the University of Louisville family, you will face many opportunities and challenges. For most, it’s your first experience of living on your own and making healthy lifestyle decisions. To assist you, we offer many programs to help you adapt to your new life on campus.

One of these initiatives is AlcoholEdu/Haven, a web-based alcohol and sexual assault prevention program that is required of all incoming first time freshman students.

Recognized nationally for its effectiveness, AlcoholEdu/Haven uses the latest prevention techniques and science-based research to educate students about the impact of alcohol and sexual assault.

AlcoholEdu/Haven is designed to help you make well-informed decisions about alcohol and to better cope with the drinking behavior of others. The program has been helpful to many college students seeking ways to balance their new freedom living away from home with their need to establish a healthy and safe lifestyle as young adults.

To take the course, you will need a computer with internet access and audio capabilities. If you do not have access to a computer, you can use any available computer with internet access such as those at your public library. On-campus computer labs are available to you as well.

Every incoming first time freshman is required to take AlcoholEdu/Haven. On July 14, 2014 you will receive an email giving you specific directions for logging on to AlcoholEdu/Haven. You will need to complete Part 1 of the course, which takes about two and a half hours to finish. This process may be broken down into multiple sessions but must be completed by Aug. 8. On or after Sept. 24, 2014, you will receive an automated e-mail asking you to complete Part 2, which will take about 15 minutes. You have not completed the program until both Parts 1 and 2 have been submitted.

If Part 1 is not completed by September 2, 2014, an academic hold will be placed on your account. This program and holds have been approved by the Provost and a university wide task force. If you have an academic hold or concerns, questions about the program or problems accessing the course, please reference our website at contact 502-852-6513.

All individual responses are strictly confidential; UofL officials will never see any individual student’s answers.

At the University of Louisville we care about students. AlcoholEdu/Haven has proven to be helpful to more than 1 million college students nationally, and we believe it will both provide useful information to students and help us create a safer campus community.

Have a safe summer and welcome to our family!
