Online Training for Students

The University of St Thomas is committed to promoting and protecting the personal dignity and well-being of every member of our community. To that end, we are requiring that all students view Not Anymore, an online interpersonal violence prevention and awareness program from Student Success. In September 2015 all registered students were required to complete the training. Currently, only incoming graduate and undergraduate students are required to complete the course. Any currently enrolled student who has not completed the training by Fall 2017 will receive a registration hold placed on their account, preventing registration for future courses.  This includes returning undergraduate and graduate students who did not complete the program in 2015 or 2016.

This video-based program will provide critical information about how to support someone who’s experienced sexual assault, dating violence or stalking, as well as ways you can intervene in high-risk situations to help keep people safe. These videos will also cover the University of St. Thomas policies prohibiting sexual misconduct and resources students can access should they encounter such a situation. We hope you will find this information useful and that it can serve as a starting point for discussion on interpersonal violence and misconduct with your classmates, friends or loved ones.

The graduate program will take approximately 45-60 minutes to complete, including the pre- and post-test evaluation.  Graduate students will need to achieve a score of 90% to complete the training. 

Can I stop and restart where I left off?

Yes.  You will be able to use the same link through Murphy Online to re-enter the program to complete it in several sittings without having to start over.  We encourage students to complete the program in 2 or 3 sittings, rather than all at once. The program will automatically save your progress each time you complete a video module and when you click on the "resources tab."  To save your progress in the middle of video module, be sure to click "logout" before leaving the program. 

Are the answers to my pre- and post-test questions confidential?

Yes.  All the answers to your pre- and post-test questions are completely confidential and not connected to your name or St. Thomas ID. 

I completed the training. Why isn’t that information showing up in my Murphy Online?

Please wait 4 hours for your Murphy Online account to update with this information. 

Why am I required to take this training?

The University of St. Thomas is committed to an educational environment that is free from sexual misconduct as well as promoting and protecting the personal dignity and well-being of every member of our community.  This training will provide our students with the resources on how to prevent and respond to sexual misconduct.  In addition, both federal and state law require colleges and universities to provide students with education on how to prevent sexual misconduct and information on policies and resources specific to each campus.

Do I have to take this training every year?

No, you only have to complete this training once during your current program.

If I’ve already taken a training on sexual misconduct at another school or through my employer, do I have to complete the training at St. Thomas?

This training will include resources and policies specific to the University of St. Thomas, therefore we are requiring all students to take the training regardless of their previous training at a different institution. 

I'm an online student, why am I required to complete the training?

While much of this content may not appear to be directly applicable to your experience as a student taking courses only online, we recognize that domestic violence, stalking, sexual assault and other forms of power-based personal violence can happen to anyone, both on and off our campus. We want our students to have the resources they need should they ever encounter such a situation. In addition, both federal and state law require colleges and universities to provide students with this information, regardless if they’re enrolled in an online or in person course.   

I have concerns about completing this training due to the difficult nature of the content. Can I request an exemption?

Yes. We understand that for a number of reasons students may have difficulties completing the training due to its content.  While the training itself provides some remedies for this- such as allowing users to block video and sound during victim/survivor testimonies- we acknowledge this may not be sufficient for all students.  As an alternative to the online training, you can request an in person meeting.  This meeting will cover University policies, reporting options and support resources and does not require you to disclose any personal information including whether or not you have experienced sexual misconduct or violence.

If you would like to request an exemption please contact the Office of Student Affairs at 651-962-6120 or stuaffairs@stthomas.edu.
