STILLWATER — Beginning this semester, all Oklahoma State University students will have to complete an online course aimed at sexual-assault awareness and prevention, and the campus community now has a revamped central location for resources about such crimes.

The course requirement, announced via email to students on Monday, is in conjunction with the public launch of 1is2many, a website created by the university that is dedicated to information about sexual-assault reporting and domestic violence and which provides resources for students and others.

"Oklahoma State University takes acts of sexual violence and sexual harassment seriously," the university wrote in the email. "In an effort to comply with the Violence Against Women Act and the Office for Civil Rights federal guidelines, all students are required to complete online training on sexual violence prevention. A hold will be placed on your account, which will affect enrollment for the subsequent semester, until the training has been completed."
