MSUM encourages a healthy campus environment to enhance your well-being. We believe health and wellness is a key component to ensure your academic success, and we offer programs and resources to promote healthy lifestyles.
Alcohol, Tobacco & Other Drugs
MSUM is committed to establishing and enforcing clear campus policies regarding the use of alcohol, tobacco and other drugs. MSU Moorhead is also devoted to creating a clean, safe, and healthy environment for all students and employees of the university; therefore, smoking, tobacco use, and tobacco sales are prohibited on campus.
MSUM Counseling Services offers settings in which students may explore concerns of personal or academics; makes referrals; and serves as a consultant for faculty and staff. We offer free and confidential mental health, alcohol and drug, sexual assault and violence counseling. MSUM Counseling Services fully supports Safe Space on campus, and we pledge to be confidential, nonjudgmental and supportive contacts for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning, intersex or asexual (LGBTQIA) members of the Minnesota State University Moorhead College community.
MSU Moorhead's Campus CARE Team
MSU Moorhead's Campus CARE Team provides faculty, staff and students a resource to contact if they have concerns about a student.
The SVPT course focuses on promoting the intellectual awareness of all students, offering accessible resources and services from the university regarding sexual violence and sexual harassment. Students and employees are required to complete this course.
Sexual Harassment & Sexual Violence - Title IX
Acts of sexual violence are intolerable. MSUM expects all members of the campus community to act in a manner that does not infringe on the rights of others. We are committed to eliminating all acts of sexual violence. STOP Sexual Assault by joining the "It's On Us" national campaign that MSUM has adopted, which is focused on increasing education and awareness around preventing sexual violence on campus. All members of the campus community have a role to take in making our campus a safe place. Get educated and take the pledge.
