Voices for Change is an online training program designed to promote a healthier and safer campus environment for everyone. Seattle University requires all incoming students to complete the program prior to attending classes. Voices for Change is divided into four critical areas which students face. Those areas are: living in and supporting an inclusive community, understanding and preventing sexual misconduct through bystander intervention, understanding alcohol and other drugs, and preventing hazing and bullying. This program is just one part of our commitment to these topics. During our students' time at Seattle University, they will have the opportunity to engage in an array of programs and activities that are more in depth explorations of these topics including bystander intervention, examining anti-racist practices, understanding sexual violence myths, risk reduction centered approaches to alcohol and other drugs, among others.
Once you have been admitted and deposited for your first term at SU, we will assign you to Voices for Change and notify you via SU email. You will use your Seattle U login information to access the course.
Every incoming student is required to complete this training by the assigned due date. Students, who complete the program as a non-matriculated student or as an undergraduate and continue on for graduate studies, will need to complete the graduate version of the program.
|Term Joining Seattle U||Access Date||Due Date|
|Summer (2020 only) and Fall Terms||August 1||September 15|
|Winter Quarter||December 1||January 2|
|Spring Semester (Law School)||December 1||January 2|
|Spring Quarter||March 1||March 27|
|Summer (All Future Years)||June 1||July 1|
New students who register for classes after the due date will have one week to complete assigned modules.
Students, who do not complete the assigned modules by the due date listed for their starting term, will be assigned a hold which prevents registration for future terms. If you have a hold on your account, lifting the hold is simple.
Once we receive your email, you will receive a response letting you know when the hold has been removed. It generally takes place within one business day to complete this process.
If you have any questions or need assistance including assignment of courses, due dates, holds, please contact us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. Further contacts are below:
Director, Wellness & Health Promotion
Incoming students can expect an email (at their SU email address) notifying them of their assignment and due date. Once your due date has passed, a hold will be placed on your account preventing you from registering for future classes.
The course updates on a daily basis. Students who only recently deposited may need to wait a day after receiving access to other online systems. Students can expect an email notification with an introduction, course information, due dates, and instructions for accessing Voices for Change through the our vendor, Get Inclusive. Be sure to check your email, specifically your spam, deleted, or other email folders. If you cannot find the course invitation, please contact email@example.com.
Seattle University requires all incoming students to complete training this training for a few main reasons:
We understand the sensitive nature of sexual misconduct. The program was written in a trauma-informed way; however, we recognize everyone is different. If you'd like to complete this program with additional support or accommodation, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are feeling overwhelmed by the content of this program, please call Chris Fiorello, Director of Wellness and Health Promotion, at 206-296-2593 so you can privately discuss your individual situation and determine the best way to proceed. We have options. We hope this goes without saying, but we care deeply about all our students and are always available to talk.
We love feedback and strive to make the course better for our students. We share all feedback with our partners at Get Inclusive who created the Voices for Change course and actively partner with them to improve the modules.
Feedback will be collected form participants at the end of the course. If you have additional suggestions for improvement, we'd love to hear from you. You can email email@example.com and one of our staff will get back in touch with you. If you would like to provide your feedback directly and privately to a staff member, you may call Chris Fiorello at 206-296-2593 to schedule a time to speak individually.
