We provide mechanisms to report unacceptable behavior, support for impacted individuals and communities, and equitable processes to address alleged policy violations. The College also provides educational programs designed to facilitate a culture of safety and respect.

Please join Champlain in creating a campus culture that is safe for all of us by becoming aware of policies, learning opportunities, support resources, and your role in being a responsible member of our community.

Student Prevention Education Training

Champlain brings prevention education to students even before they start classes. All incoming students are expected to complete a series of online educational modules including: alcohol awareness and prevention training; diversity, equity, and inclusion for undergraduates; mental wellbeing for students; and sexual violence prevention. These educational modules provide a comprehensive overview of issues that are central to the student experience.

For current students, the Office of Diversity & Inclusion, the Women’s & Gender Center, the Bias Education & Response Team, and the Office of Housing & Residential Life offer programs throughout the year that facilitate skill building around key aspects of prevention. These may include topics such as dating and communication, consent, self- and community-care, helping a friend, and bystander intervention.

If you are a current student and would like to take any or all of the online education modules listed above, please email to request access.
