Our Program

The Mission 

Our mission is to empower students, families, and administrators to positively impact campus communities in the areas of alcohol, drugs, and wellness. We emphasize evidence-based, comprehensive prevention to educate and motivate students to make healthy decisions.

Our Approach 

MyStudentBody is designed to reduce risky student behavior using strategies that research has shown are most effective—motivational, attitudinal, and skill-training interventions. More than a one-time-through prevention course, MyStudentBody is available 24/7, all semester long, for information on drugs, alcohol, sexual violence, and other health and wellness issues that can affect their academic success. MyStudentBody also gives parents tools they can use to reinforce your school’s prevention message. And, it provides you with data and strategies to support their overall prevention program.

Essentials Course

Essentials is a prevention education course intended for incoming students. It covers the three most significant behavioral risks new college students face: alcohol, illicit and prescription drugs, and sexual violence. Structured around a motivational self-assessment in each area, Essentials incorporates audio, video, and interactive tools and lessons to teach students key concepts and skills. Follow-up assessment gives administrators a window on student risks and consequences throughout the term.

Student Conduct Course

Specifically designed for students who violate school alcohol policies, Student Conduct encourages students to make informed choices and helps students identify their problematic behavior and avoid future sanctions. It incorporates the Alcohol Use Disorders Identification Test (AUDIT), a measure that evaluates how harmful a person’s drinking may be. The program uses interactive audio, video, and written lessons and tools to keep students engaged. Campus administrators can easily customize the score required to pass the course, control how many attempts students are allowed, and schedule follow-up assessments.

Parent

Research shows that even after students leave for college, parents still maintain a strong influence on their behavior. MyStudentBody’s unique Parent component gives parents tools and strategies to make the most of that influence in support of your prevention efforts. Interactive lessons, video dialogues, and a 56-page downloadable parent guide help parents talk with their students about the difficult topics of risky drinking, prescription drug abuse, and other social challenges within the college environment.

We are generally using MyStudentBody for judicial violations, but we hope to continue to expand use of the program for non-policy violating students. I am especially pleased with the personal service offered."
