What are Auburn’s goals for implementing EverFi?
Auburn is seeking to create a campus environment where every member of our community can thrive. Our overall goals are:

- EverFi content will reinforce the university commitment to safety, wellbeing, and content shared at Camp War Eagle
- EverFi courses will be a catalyst for the discussion regarding healthy decisions on campus
- EverFi courses will assist the University community in identifying resources that provide a safer environment
Is my data private?

Will my answers be private?
