At the University of Kentucky, we care about the well-being of all students. We know that you will face many opportunities and challenges as you settle into campus life.
To help with this transition, UK offers a variety of prevention initiatives, including Haven and AlcoholEdu. We believe these programs will both provide useful information to students and help us shape a safer campus community.
UK has partnered with EverFi, whose mission is to help students address critical life skills such as alcohol abuse prevention, sexual assault prevention and financial literacy, in high schools and higher education institutions across the country. Each year over ½ million students complete these courses. Recognized nationally for its effectiveness, Haven uses the latest prevention techniques and science-based research to educate students about the impact of sexual violence.
The VIP Center is responsible for Haven, a web-based violence prevention program that is required of all incoming freshmen and transfer students. AlcoholEdu is administered by the Office of Substance Education and Responsibility.
All incoming freshmen and transfer students are required to take Haven. On July 21, 2014 you will receive an email giving you specific directions for logging on to both Haven and AlcoholEdu. You will need to complete Part 1 of the courses, 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. 18. 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. Students who do not complete both programs will have an academic “hold” placed on their account and will not be able to register for the spring semester until the training has been completed.
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.
Please note the courses may include surveys to help personalize your experience and measure your attitudes and behaviors. All survey responses are confidential; the school will only receive information about the student body as a whole and will never see any individual student's answers.
If you have an academic hold, questions about the program or problems accessing the course, please contact us at VIPCenter@uky.edu or 859-257-2884.
