Respect and Responsibility Letter Fall 2017

Dear Student,

Welcome to St. Cloud State University. We are excited that out of thousands of schools across the country, you chose St. Cloud State.  While you are here you will meet many new people, have new experiences and learn an incredible amount about your world and yourself.  But no university is perfect. Every year at every school students experience issues like sexual assault, dating violence, stalking, discrimination and racism. Our university is committed to providing a safe and respectful campus environment for everyone. But we need your help to make this happen. 

As a part of that commitment, you are required to complete the Respect and Responsibility two-part program during your first semester. Part One, a program on preventing gender violence called Not Anymore, is entirely on-line. Part Two is a one hour in-person workshop entitled, Community Through Diversity. Students commonly describe the workshop as educational, positive, fun, helpful, and useful in helping them understand respect; 94.5 percent of attendees have shared that they would recommend the workshop to a friend.

If you are a survivor of sexual violence and would prefer to schedule an alternative individual meeting with an advocate, contact the Women’s Center at 320-308-4958 for information on this option, or email Lee LaDue at leladue@stcloudstate.edu.

Please read the following information to avoid a hold on your registration.

Part One: Not Anymore

Minnesota law requires students to complete training on sexual assault prevention within the first 10 days of classes.

At St. Cloud State you must complete Part One by Aug. 31, 2017. If Part One is not completed, a hold will be placed on your registration until you complete the course. The first weeks of school are a busy time. Consider taking the course before you arrive.

Step 1: Log on to Student Success™.

Step 2: Under “First Time User,” enter this school-access code: 1425683

Step 3: Follow the instructions provided to complete the course.  You will be asked to enter your Student ID number. This is the 8-digit number on your Student ID card. You will also be asked to enter your Huskynet e-mail address. Create a password and keep this information until you complete the course.

It is best to complete the course in one sitting. However, you can leave and re-enter the course as a “returning student,” using the password. Most students complete the course in approximately 90 minutes. You must pass the post-test by at least 85 percent. Test questions will appear throughout the program, as well as at the end. 

If you are experiencing difficulty accessing the program, we are available 1-5 p.m Aug. 18 in Centennial Hall, Room 455.

Questons? Call the Women's center at 320-308-4958.

Part Two: Community through Diversity

Many of you registered for an Aug. 18 workshop (RESP 100) during Advising and Registration Day.

Additional workshops are offered during Huskies First Four and during the first few weeks of the semester.

If you have questions, contact Student Life and Development at 320-308-3111 and respect@stcloudstate.edu. Detailed information is on the Respect and Responsibility web page.

FAQ

Why do I have to do this?

The problems of sexual assault, dating violence and stalking on college campuses and in our communities demand action. We believe that an educated student body is in all of our best interests and can help reduce this nationwide epidemic.  We need everyone to be involved, students, faculty, and staff, and to intervene as bystanders when someone is being hurt. State and federal laws also require mandatory education on these issues.  Therefore, St. Cloud State requires all new students to complete an on-line educational course called Not Anymore, through the Student Success™ website.

What do I need to know about the course?

  • The course consists of a pre-test, videos on preventing sexual assault, dating violence and stalking, and a post-test. We are able to track students’ progress and post-test grades.
  • Some students think they can view the videos and take the test. These students ususally end up having to retake the test several times. 
  • You must pass the post-test with a score of 85 percent or higher. You can review the material and retake the test two times.
  • If you are unable to access this course from a home computer, you can use acomputer in the Miller Center. Bring headphones.
  • The course can usually be completed in less than two hours.
  • If you are a non-traditional student, we need feedback to improve the course. Send an email to womenscenter@stcloudstate.edu  to help shape future course design. The information about sexual violence, dating violence and stalking is important for everyone no matter your age, gender and life experience. In addition, our younger students need informed role models.
