Community Education Modules (CEMs)

Incoming first-year and transfer students are required to complete three online courses, which make up the Community Education Modules. These modules assist students in developing a shared understanding of the values that we embrace as a Catholic Marianist University. Failure to complete all courses in their entirety will result in a hold being placed on your student account.

Note: Students in the UD Sinclair Academy will complete these courses upon transfer to the University of Dayton. International students will receive alternative programming on these topics and are not required to complete the online modules.

  • AlcoholEdu is a two-part course, which educates students on the impacts of alcohol and provides information needed to make healthy decisions.
  • Sexual Assault Prevention for Undergraduates (SAPU) is a two-part course, which educates students about healthy relationships, the importance of consent, and the role of bystander intervention.
  • Created for students by students, UDiversity is a one-part course, which prepares students to learn, lead, and serve in a diverse global society.
