Options for Completing Your Participation

You can choose from an in-person event, a video collection or an online tutorial. 

If you’re required by your school to participate, you only need to select one option to fulfill your requirement; however, you are certainly welcome to complete more than one if you like. If you're not a Nursing, General Studies or SIPA student but want to participate, please fill out this form and we will give you access to all of the options. If you have questions about your participation requirements, please contact your Dean of Students.
