At Macalester, we are committed to living and learning in community. This means sharing a commitment to the health and well-being of ourselves and others. It also means considering how our actions affect others and working together to keep our community healthy and safe. Use of substances is definitely a part of the conversation.
Macalester faculty and staff engage in promoting healthy behaviors and supporting students' personal and professional development. We empower students to inform themselves about the impact of alcohol use both personally and within community.
This is why Macalester requires all incoming students to take the AlcoholEdu for College online course.
You will need Internet access and audio capabilities. To avoid technical issues, use any major web browser released within the previous two years. You may complete the course in multiple sittings.
The course may include surveys to help personalize the experience and measure students’ attitudes and behaviors. All survey responses are confidential; Macalester will only receive information about the student body as a whole and will never see individual student responses.
Should you experience problems, technical support is available 24/7 and can be accessed from the “Help” link within the course.
Complete instructions on how to access and complete the online course will be available in the New Student Portal beginning on July 24, 2017. The deadline to complete the online course is August 25, 2017.
