Educational Modules

September 12, 2022

Your education includes learning both inside and outside the classroom through your life as a Buckeye. Ohio State offers a variety of educational opportunities, some required, some highly recommended, to help you live your best and most healthy life.

In the coming weeks and months, some very important training modules may be added either to your BuckeyeLearn transcript or your BuckeyeLink checklist, depending on your student status. See an overview below and use the contact emails for more information. And if you have already taken some of these assigned modules, thank you!

  • U Got This! is sexual misconduct prevention education required of all students each academic year. This prevention education addresses sexual misconduct, including sexual assault, sexual harassment, relationship violence, and stalking, provides tools to challenge and report harmful behavior, and information on how to support someone who has experienced sexual misconduct.

    All students are required to complete a version of U Got This! annually. All incoming students (undergraduate, graduate, and professional) and returning undergraduate students will complete U Got This! All returning graduate and professional students will complete U Got This 2! Stay tuned, OIE will release a new training to supplement U Got This!, that covers harassment and discrimination based on other protected classes.

  • Buck-I-CARE About Consent is assigned to the BuckeyeLink checklist for all incoming first-year and transfer students. This is a separate training from U Got This!, which is required of all Ohio State students on an annual basis. U Got This! addresses sexual misconduct, including sexual assault or harassment, relationship violence and stalking, and provides tools to identify, disrupt and report sex- and gender-based misconduct, and outlines available support resources. Buck-I-CARE and U Got This! work in tandem to ensure Ohio State students understand sexual misconduct and consent and that they have the tools necessary to prevent sexual misconduct or find support and resources if necessary.

  • Collin’s Law is Ohio’s Anti-Hazing Act, which requires all students to complete anti-hazing education prior to participation in any organization recognized by or operating under the sanction of Ohio State; including athletic teams, sports clubs, student organizations and other student groups.  This 25-minute module, offered in BuckeyeLearn and assigned to your BuckeyeLink checklist, educates members of the university community on how to recognize and report hazing and intervene when hazing is occurring.  In addition, the training module outlines criminal penalties for hazing, requirements to report hazing to law enforcement and campus resources that support anti-hazing efforts.
