Student Well-being: itMatters is an online behavioral intervention designed to specifically promote student well-being. Through itMatters, we aim to provide you with information and resources on topics that are often avoided or overlooked in high schools, but that have a lot of influence on your personal success as a student and in life. Topics to be covered include Alcohol; Sexual Behaviors; Sexual Violence; Mental Health and Sleep Wellness. The course targets common young adult risk and protective factors: knowledge; skills; prevalence norms; approval norms; behavioral expectancy; perceived benefits of protective behavioral strategies; and self-efficacy for using protective behavioral strategies.

All New Students Under 25 (first year and transfers) are required to complete Student Well-Being: itMatters.

Graduate and Adult Students are only required to complete the Sexual Violence module. Sexual Violence Prevention: itMatters is an online, non-opinionated, science-based sexual violence awareness and prevention course for non-traditional student groups, including graduate, professional, online and adult learners. The course addresses the critical issues of sexual violence including accurate definitions, helpful resources, personal and community rights and responsibilities, and information related to bystander intervention education.
