Sexual Assault Prevention online module

MIT is committed to working with all students to create a healthy and vibrant campus community. One aspect of this is to confront the important topics of sexual assault, harassment and relationship violence.

As a part of this ongoing effort, we have partnered with EverFi to offer a Sexual Assault Prevention course customized to meet the needs of graduate students. It allows you to become familiar with MIT policies and resources while also providing training on critical prevention skills and strategies.

This course is required for all new, incoming graduate students, who will receive direct communication regarding deadlines and links to complete the training. Incoming students complete Part 1 of this online program in the summer prior to starting classes. Sexual Assault Prevention-Graduates Students takes approximately 1 hour to complete. It may be taken in multiple sittings.

Incoming students will be prompted to complete the brief Part 2 of the program in October. Those students who fail to complete this program will be subject to a registration hold in the following Spring term.

If you are required to take the training, but feel that taking it would be difficult, please contact Bianca Kaushal at bkaushal@mit.edu to discuss other options.

Students who have already received similar training at MIT or another institution may qualify for an exemption. Please contact trainmod@mit.edu for more information.

Frequently Asked Questions

How will MIT use the information I provide in this training?

All survey responses are confidential; the school will only receive information about the student body as a whole and will never see individual students’ responses. Administrators will have access to student test scores, but like the surveys, will not have access to individual responses.

When am I supposed to take Part 2 of this course?

Part 2 will be available to you in October of 2021 after the completion of Part 1. This is so that you have time to experience MIT in more depth before you retake the survey. The courses are designed to see what you know before you take them. The post-assessment in Part 2 checks your understanding after you have had time to process the material. This pre- and post-assessment helps MIT to determine if the courses are effective.

How do I access Part 2?

You will be emailed a link to Part 2 and it will be visible in the Learning Center under “My Training Needs” Click the “view course” link in the grey box to the right.
