CONVERSATIONS CAN CHANGE LIVES

Have you ever been worried about a student or friend on campus? Faculty, staff, and students are in an ideal position to recognize when someone is struggling emotionally and may need help. Kognito is an online simulation that lets you practice conversations with a virtual student, so you'll know what to say in real life. This program is available to EVC students to help create a safer and more supportive campus.
