Walden University aims to create a healthy and safe residency environment for all students, faculty and staff. In order to attend your academic residency, you are required to complete an online course titled “Thinking About It” at Campus Clarity. In this pre-residency course, you will examine the interconnected issues of hooking up, substance abuse, sexual violence, and healthy relationships through a variety of interactive, realistic scenarios and guided self-reflection. The course takes about 90 minutes to complete. You can work at your own pace from any computer (Flash player required). You can leave and return to complete the course at any time prior to the residency, and when you return it will open to the page where you left off.
Please note: All faculty, staff and students are required to complete this online course prior to attending their upcoming residency and on an annual basis thereafter.
Approximately 2 weeks before the residency start date, please watch your Walden email for a message with the subject line “Important Message Regarding Mandatory Title IX Online Training (Thinking About It)”. This message contains your link to complete the required training course named “Thinking About It”.
You can reserve your advising appointment time(s) beginning 9 days prior to the first day of your face-to-face residency/skills lab/pre-practicum experience (Exceptions: PhD Psychology students attending BAYR residencies and EdD Advanced students attending virtual residencies).
Follow the instructions in your residency registration confirmation email to schedule your fadvising appointment(s) for the days/times you will be attending the residency/skills lab/pre-practicum experience. Appointment times are listed in the local time zone of the residency location. Advising meeting locations for face-to-face events will be posted in the Residency App.
Plan to get the most out of your advising appointments by bringing your plan of study, your resume/vita, your research and/or library questions, etc.
