Why does LSU require primary prevention education?
The first few months of college for new students is a critical timeframe to ensure you are successful. This is also a very high-risk time of year for alcohol misuse and sexual violence, particularly for new students who are navigating a new environment with new people and new experiences.
Nationally, many first-year students find themselves in trouble for alcohol or drug related offenses, some resulting in serious injuries or fatalities. Further, first-year students experience some form of sexual violence at higher rates within the first few months of the academic year.
These issues are preventable, and campus-wide prevention education is essential to empowering all community members to do their part to create a safe and healthy college experience.
With prevention education, we can decrease these national statistics:
25% of students nationwide
report academic consequences from drinking each year 1
13% of students nationwideexperience sexual assault 2
