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. Incoming graduate and undergraduate students are required to complete the course. Any currently enrolled student who has not completed the training will receive a course registration hold placed on their account, preventing registration for future courses.
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 discussions on interpersonal violence and misconduct with your classmates, friends or loved ones.

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.
No, you only have to complete this training once during your current program. Graduate students who completed the undergraduate program at St. Thomas DO have to complete the graduate student version.
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.
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.
Yes. The graduate program contains different and new information from the undergraduate version, such as more information on sexual harassment. In addition, this training provides important definitions and information from the sexual misconduct policy. The sexual misconduct policy is updated every few years and has likely changed since you completed the undergraduate version as an incoming student.
If you have completed the staff/faculty sexual misconduct training within the past 3 years, you do not need to complete the student version. Staff and faculty should be automatically exempted from the student training. If you are receiving reminder emails about completing the student version please contact Emily Erickson, Sexual Misconduct Program Director at firstname.lastname@example.org.
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. Students can request an alternative training. This training 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 Sexual Misconduct Program Director, Emily Erickson at email@example.com.
