Campus Community Health Education
In preparation for joining our Sarah Lawrence campus community, all new incoming students are required to complete two online education courses: Consent and Respect and AlcoholWise.
Consent and Respect is an online course designed to enhance awareness of sexual assault, including its impact on college students and the importance of consent and respect in sexual situations. This course defines what an active bystander is and actions that you can take to possibly prevent sexual violence as well as critical information on what to do if you or someone you know experiences sexual violence.
It is important that students, faculty, and staff be aware of the College's Policy on Student Sexual Harassment, Sexual Misconduct, and Sexual Assault. Additionally, campus community members should familiarize themselves with the Student Conduct Process: Sexual Harassment, Sexual Misconduct, and Sexual Assault.
Alcohol-Wise is an online alcohol education program designed to assist students in making healthy decisions regarding alcohol use in college. The program includes information on how expectations influence behavior, alcohol's effect on learning and memory, recognizing and responding to an alcohol-related emergency, and low-risk drinking strategies.
Sarah Lawrence College regards the illegal use and abuse of alcohol and other drugs as problems that impact our community. Please review the College's complete Alcohol and Other Drug Policies and the Drugs and Alcohol Penal Law for information on New York State laws and City of Yonkers ordinances.
SLC Counseling & Psychological Services staff members are all licensed professionals with extensive training in working with college-age adults. We are available on campus to meet with students or concerned friends or faculty. Appointments may be made online at: my.slc.edu/healthservices or by phone at 914-395-2350.
