Sexual Assault Prevention

Mandatory SVSH Prevention Trainings

In order to promote awareness of resources and reporting options, and in recognition of federal government regulations and UC system-wide guidelines, ALL incoming students are required to complete sexual violence and sexual harassment prevention training.   

Incoming Undergraduates must complete TWO SVSH Prevention Requirements

  1. Slugs CARE/Title IX Presentation (via Webinar) 
  2. Online Sexual Assault Prevention (SAP) program which is part of We Are Slugs!

Winter 2023 Incoming Students

The Mandatory Slugs CARE/Title IX training live webinar will take place on January 4th from 1-2:30 pm. Students should check their UCSC emails for a calendar invite and an email from lyounghi@ucsc.edu. Both include the Zoom information. Students must sign in with their UCSC emails and attendance will be recorded via Zoom. Please plan to attend from a quiet place where students can respond to polls and learn from other UCSC undergraduate students about resources, campus culture, and the Sexual Violence Sexual Harassment policy which protects our campus community.

In order to complete this mandatory assignment, in addition to attending the webinar, all incoming undergraduates must pass a quiz based on the material presented in the presentation. An invitation to the W23 Slugs CARE/Title IX Canvas course will be sent out following the live webinar. Within the Canvas course, students must pass the quiz which will be available after January 7th.

Students who missed the live webinar must view the video makeup and pass the quiz. See below for an alternative training option.

 

Sexual Assault Prevention (SAP)-online program 

Incoming undergraduates must ALSO complete Sexual Assault Prevention (SAP) created by Everfi. Sexual Assault Prevention (SAP) is part of the We Are Slugs! curriculum for all incoming undergraduates and is one of three required online programs. For more information visit weareslugs.com.

Alternative Training Option

Survivors of sexual violence can request an alternative training option by emailing the confidential CARE Office at care@ucsc.edu. Please include the name of the training that you were assigned, your student id number, and UCSC email address.

Accessibility

If you need any support accessing either of the trainings due to a disability-related access concern, please email lyounghi@ucsc.edu.

SVSH Prevention Requirements for Student Employees 

The SVSH Prevention training for Non-Supervisors (includes undergraduate student employees) provides information about the reporting responsibilities for all UC employees. Within a few days of being entered into the payroll system, undergraduate student employees will be sent an email to their UCSC email address with the training assignment. The training takes about 50 minutes to complete and provides important information about rights and resources as well as reporting responsibilities that all UC employees have. To access the employee training, login to the UC Learning Center and enter your username and gold password. 

For problems accessing the training email learningcenter@ucsc.edu. New student employees must complete the staff training, in addition to the student training, unless they completed the staff training within the past two years.
