What is Voices for Change?

As a part of UNA's efforts to maintain a safe and educational learning environment, all first-year freshmen and transfer students are required to complete the Voices for Change learning modules provided through our partner, Get Inclusive. This course is used at more than 200 universities across the country and uses scientific-based research to educate students. 

UNA students will learn more about our policies while engaging in a short video series, text, and quizzes filled with information related to various topics including bystanding intervention, diversity and inclusion, alcohol and other drugs, sexual harassment, and hazing. 

How do I access Voices for Change?

Students will receive instructions on how to complete the course via their UNA email account. 

The course will be completed utilizing Canvas. This allows you to complete the course without having to memorize another password and also to help familiarize yourself with the platform you'll be using for many of your classes while at UNA!
