Registering for MyStudentBody

Greetings,

Although alcohol use does not present a problem for most students, alcohol abuse and experimentation is an issue that affects the entire community.  Since most students favor activism and prevention efforts over negativism and disciplinary action, our school is always looking for innovative ways to enhance our comprehensive alcohol abuse prevention strategy and to promote the responsible use of alcohol both on- and off- campus.

Along with alcohol abuse, sexual violence is a concerning issue for college students and their community. 1 in 5 women is sexually assaulted while in college. Fewer men are sexually assaulted but it is a problem that affects us all. Sexual violence prevention is something we take seriously and we work hard to create an inclusive and safe community for all.

The Boston Conservatory is proud to offer MyStudentBody as part of our orientation program.  MyStudentBody features online courses about alcohol, drugs, and sexual violence that are used in schools nationwide as a requirement for first year students. Providing online education through a flexible interactive design, the MyStudentBody courses teach students about alcohol, drugs and other addictive substances, and sexual violence. The goal of the course is to increase students’ knowledge, decrease harmful behaviors, and provide information to help students make good decisions. This course also covers Bystander Intervention techniques; an important resource when it comes to the prevention of sexual violence.

This program is important to complete, however, we understand that some of the material may be triggering, especially for survivors of sexual assault. If you are unable to complete the program due to the nature of the material, we ask that you contact the Director of Wellness Services to make other arrangements. Please email wellness@bostonconservatory.edu if you feel that you need to make other arrangements.

The Boston Conservatory requires all new students (including undergraduate, transfers, and graduates) to complete the MyStudentBody Essentials Course. You must complete the course by August 15th, 2014 in order to avoid having a hold placed on your account, which could inhibit your ability to register for classes.
