Every new student is required to complete the Discoveries Online program prior to arrival to campus. By completing these modules & EverFi trainings new students will:
- Learn what to expect at DU, inside and outside the classroom
- Learn what supports and services are available to students on campus
- Explore some strategies for university success
- Feel ready and confident to start the term
Discoveries Online Orientation Modules
Students will be automatically enrolled in this course. They will be notified through their DU email account when the course is updated and ready for them to begin. All new students are required to complete these courses before Discoveries Orientation, in order to avoid an enrollment hold.
Winter Admit Students, your courses are available to you now and require completion by the 13th of February or a hold will be placed on your registration for future DU terms. Please see below for updated log in instructions.
Students will access the course through Canvas by logging in with their DU ID and Password.
The original “Everfi” online platform in which the assignments were made is closing as our provider phases it out; you are no longer able to access the old platform. Therefore to help you meet this requirement, we have created new assignments for you in the successor, “Vector” learning platform. While we noted any courses you already finished in the old system, you must start over any course you hadn’t fully completed last week.
To complete your remaining required courses, please use the following NEW login instructions:
- Visit https://dustudents-co.vectorlmsedu.com/login
- Your username is your email@example.com email address
- Your initial password is the first 5 (five) letters in your email address
Once logged in, you can change your password from the Settings menu if you wish. Tech support for the courses themselves is available within the platform.
If you have any trouble logging in or have other questions about the requirement, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
AlcoholEdu for College
At DU, we value the health and safety of our community especially when it comes to using alcohol or other drugs (AOD). This course is designed to educate you about how alcohol and drugs affect the brain and body, the range of substance use behaviors and relationships, AOD laws and policies, and how to respond in AOD-related situations. You will also hear college student's perspectives throughout the course.
If you would like to request an exemption from this course due to recovery status or personal alcohol and other drug reasons, please contact email@example.com. You do not need to disclose your experiences, but can indicate that you would like to be exempt for personal reasons, and we may follow up with resources upon granting exemption.
Sexual Assault Prevention for Undergraduates
Best practice tells us that ongoing education is the best way to help students learn new skills and create a culture change toward the eradication of gender violence on college campuses. As a result, the Health and Counseling Center has partnered with different campus areas to provide multi-dose and multi-platform programs to help students build their skills and expertise. This course serves as that first step.
Statistics tell us that some students coming to DU have already, in some way, been impacted by gender violence. If completing Sexual Assault Prevention for Undergraduates could be activating for you, we invite you to contact CAPE@du.edu. You do not need to disclose your experience, but can indicate that you would like to be exempt for personal reasons. One of the confidential advocates from CAPE will reach out to you with resources and information.
Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion for Students
Both as a long-standing value of the University, and especially given current events in the US and beyond, it is important for the DU community to deepen our understanding of self, others, and how we more intentionally interact across similarity and difference. Along with a complementary Canvas module, this Everfi session provides some information, reflection opportunities, and skills to help students better understand and navigate the social systems at and beyond DU.
