Student Empower Plus Online Training

In the spirit of the SFA Way and to promote a culture of respect and understanding all incoming students are required to complete an online training called Student Empower Plus. This program is designed to help prepare college students for issues they may confront at college. It covers important topics such as students' rights and responsibilities; preventing sexual violence, dating violence, stalking, harassment and bullying; navigating partying, drugs and alcohol; and acting as allies for others in need and risks of alcohol use.

The Student Empower Plus training is required for all incoming students and is available on the home tab of mySFA under Student Training. This has been required by Federal Mandate & State Law since 2014. Students will be able to access other trainings as assigned through this link as well.
