Think About It

Description

Think About It is an online program that invites all our new Bearcats to join UC's conversation on consent, healthy relationships, and making responsible choices as an adult and a member of our community. The course is fun and engaging, and it speaks to a broad range of experiences. By taking Think About It, you will have the opportunity to solve real life problems, expand your knowledge of consent, and learn about UC's policies and resources.

Trigger warning:

For many people, reading about heavy topics can stir up personal memories and strong emotions. For example, many survivors of sexual violence inadvertently relive their own traumatic experience when exposed to information or scenarios that hit home for them. People without experiences of trauma, violence, or discrimination can also be affected by these issues for a variety of reasons. In order to do what we can to mitigate the impact of these discussions on people who are adversely impacted by these issues, we use trigger warnings, just so everyone can get a heads up about what's to come. That way, no one is caught off-guard and we can all prepare ourselves to fully participate.

A trigger warning does not mean that we want you to avoid taking Think About It. On the contrary, we want to make sure everyone completing the course has what they need to engage to the best of their ability without having to come out as a survivor in order to do so. We believe the onus to give you a heads up and the opportunity to prepare yourself is on us. Think About It prominently features open and frank discussions of the following potentially triggering or upsetting content:

  • stalking
  • sexual violence
  • intimate partner violence
  • LGBTQ issues
  • drug abuse and dependence
  • casual sex
  • sexual harassment

There are also a number of specific trigger warnings embedded in the course before discussions of particularly sensitive material. You will be able to skip some of these parts of the training.

We understand that these issues can have a strong impact on a lot of different people. For that reason, you have the option to change how you will participate if you anticipate being unable to engage with this course as is. Please contact the Title IX Office and we will provide you with reasonable alternatives. To find support resources, please click www.uc.edu/titleix/resources.

Why It's Important

Think About It introduces you to our university-wide conversations on important issues such as sexual violence, gender identity and expression, and campus safety. UC is committed to supporting students like you in becoming the best and brightest learners and professionals. In order to accomplish that, we want to ensure that you are a part of this dialogue so you are prepared to continue the conversation that starts in Think About It in your professional and personal lives.

UC also values a campus culture of safety and responsibility. By completing this program, you will gain the skills, language, and tools you need to ensure you and your peers have the best experience you possibly can. What you learn goes beyond campus as well; Think About It will teach you skills that matter to students from all walks of life.

UC is proud of its growing population of non-traditional Bearcats, and we believe it's important for students of every background to complete the program. Discrimination, harassment, and violence affect us all, regardless of age, gender, and any other identity. In addition, anyone taking classes at UC is protected under Title IX, so even if you're well-versed in discussions of sex and gender equity, it's still important for you to know your rights as a member of our community. For these reasons, the course is required for all non-traditional and distance learning students.
