At Colgate, we believe in the importance of creating a safe, healthy, and inclusive environment for all of our community members. To that end, we have partnered with Vector LMS to provide AlcoholEDU for College and Sexual Assault Prevention for Undergraduates (SAPU) training. We have also developed a Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) module on the Moodle platform that will help you become informed on topics vital to achieving this goal.

In addition to being interactive, these trainings are based on research around the best practices for our communities. All three trainings must be completed before your arrival.

To access the AlcoholEDU and SAPU courses, visit this website. Please complete these courses by July 13.

To access the DEI module, sign into Moodle using your Colgate email address and password. You will see My Courses - below that, click on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion 2023 to access the training module. Please complete the DEI module by August 7.

Below you will find a few resources and helpful hints that may be useful as you work through the training modules.

  • Make sure that you take it when you have time and a place where you can focus on the course.
  • Take notes, as you might, for an in-person course.
  • Work at your own pace from any computer or tablet. Courses will save your progress if you need to stop and return later.
  • Courses are best supported by the latest versions of Chrome (preferred), Firefox, Safari, or Microsoft Edge.
  • If you have difficulty with either Vector LMS or the Moodle platform, please contact

If you are in need of an accommodation related to a disability please contact the Office of Disability Services at 315-228-7375.

If you would like to talk with a trained staff member confidentially about the sexual assault prevention course material, please contact Haven, Colgate's sexual violence resource center.

Diversity of thought, experiences, beliefs, and perspectives that are different from one's own enrich the educational journey and experience. It strengthens our community and promotes personal growth. Most importantly, it prepares you to be a good citizen of the world. Thank you for your participation and for helping us to build the best campus that we can.
