GetWIse@Home – Violence Prevention Education for New Students

In addition to completing the online U Got This! program, it is expected that all first-year and new transfer students complete one GetWIse module of their choosing in the GetWIse@Home for New Students course in Canvas.

The GetWIse programs, designed UHS Violence Prevention professional staff and student Peer Educators, help new students explore violence prevention and survivor support topics more thoroughly on their own.  Each program should take no longer than 60-90 minutes.

All undergraduate students who started in Summer/Fall 2020 or Spring 2021 are expected to complete one module and there are three topic options to choose from, including: healthy sexuality/sexual assault, respectful relationships/dating violence, and how to support a survivor of violence. For more information about the GetWIse program options, please see below.

We understand that students who have personal experiences with sexual and relationship violence may find this content challenging; please know that we do not expect individuals with these experiences to complete this course if doing so would be at all harmful to your wellbeing.

If you have any questions, please email violenceprevention@uhs.wisc.edu (inbox is managed by confidential staff).
