UPDATE: January 21, 2022
As part of our University's commitment to ensuring a safe and healthy learning environment, all new incoming students are required to complete mandatory sexual violence prevention education per CSU Executive Order 1095. In January 2022, San Francisco State has launched Voices for Change a new, mandatory sexual violence prevention education online training for new, incoming students.
Please note that all official notifications regarding this required training will be sent to your San Francisco State student email account.
Voices for Change will help you make informed decisions regarding alcohol use, empower you to intervene and prevent sexual violence, and give you the tools to address to peers' risky behavior. It will provide you with the information you need to navigate affirmative consent, healthy relationships, and effective communication.
For confidential support:
We recognize that some of the content in Voices for Change may generate thoughts, feelings and other reactions that you may wish to process privately with others.
