Navigating Health and Safety
As a component of Brandeis' Health, Wellness, and Life Skills Core curriculum requirement, all new undergraduate students must complete Navigating Health and Safety in their first semester.
Navigating Health and Safety is an important step in understanding our values and learning skills to live our mission in daily life as a positive member of the Brandeis social scene. It provides important information about mental health, alcohol, cannabis, sexual health, consent and sexual misconduct, and is designed to support students in informed decision-making. Students will build confidence and resiliency by learning how to establish productive mind and body habits, set personal boundaries, deal with difficult situations, use campus resources and support their peers.
