Each year over 500,000 students complete these courses.

As part of our New Student Orientation, Roger Williams University expects you to complete 4 online courses:

  • Diversity, Inclusion & Belonging,
  • AlcoholEdu (alcohol education),
  • Sexual Assault Prevention, and
  • Mental Wellbeing.

These 4 courses can assist you in establishing healthy, positive relationships and making well-informed decisions about issues that affect your college years and beyond. 

Information on the Vector Solutions program will be sent to students via email and discussed at the June Orientation program.  The online courses will not begin until the end of July for new students starting RWU for the Fall 2023 semester.
