First Year Experience

In February, incoming undergraduate students for Winter 2021 will receive information about a required webinar on topics related to building inclusive and supportive communities. Community Matters: A Virtual Guide to Real Relationships shares education on:

  • Creating Healthy Communities 
  • Encouraging Community Members to take Accountability
  • Taking Accountability for Ourselves
  • Supporting Community Members who have Experienced Harm


This course will be available on Canvas and students are required to complete by March 8. If you are have trouble accessing the course, email

Community Matters: A Virtual Guide to Real Relationships is being offered in 2020-2021 as a virtual alternative to two in-person programs that are normally implemented each Fall. Students attend Relationship Remix and Change it Up! in groups of 60 in workshops facilitated by peers. These workshops provide content on healthy relationships and bystander intervention which have been translated to the webinar format for this year. First Year Experience looks forward to offering these workshops again in the future when it is possible to host large workshops in-person.
