All undergraduates students will be invited to take a second sexual respect training at the start of their third year at NYU. This second training acknowledges that students are in a different place in their journey in their third year, as compared to their first, and are viewing this important subject with a new lens given the experiences they will collect while living and growing as an NYU student.
