Required Online Student Training:

All University of Wisconsin - Whitewater students are required to take the online training course Sexual Assault Prevention. UWW partners with Everfi to provide the training. You will receive one of four trainings:

  • Sexual Assault Prevention for Undergraduates – This module is assigned to most new undergraduate students.
  • Sexual Assault Prevention for Adult Learners – This module is assigned to new undergraduate students age 24 and up.
  • Sexual Assault Prevention for Graduate Students – This module is assigned to all graduate students.
  • Sexual Assault Prevention: Ongoing Healthy Relationships - This module is assigned to all undergraduate returning students.

If you are an athlete, you are also assigned a supplemental module to meet NCAA requirements (so you will be assigned two modules).

  • Sexual Assault Prevention for Student Athletes

The required training is due October 8, 2021 to avoid a hold preventing you from making changes to your schedule or registering for spring 2022. The link is sent directly from the Everfi site, but if you can't find the link, you can go to the Everfi Foundry training page.

A few reminders about the required student training:

  1. The site will NOT automatically recognize your UWW log in credentials. You use your email address as the username, but must create a password. This password IS NOT linked to your other UWW sites like Canvas and WINS. You can use the same one, however, if you choose.
  2. Thirty (30) days after you complete the training, you will be sent a link to a “Part Two of the training. We highly encourage you to complete that training so we can assess the learning progress of our community. However, although highly encouraged, completing this part is not required.
  3. If you have technical questions about the training, you can go to support.everfi.com and submit a work order to ask for assistance.

If you have other questions, or have been involved in past trauma and are requesting an exemption, please email me at titleix@uww.edu.
