U of Nine: App-Based Solution from ATIXA and Trivie


Experience U of Nine for yourself! Free 14-day trials available online at www.uofnine.com. A complimentary webinar is being offered to demonstrate the app. To register for the webinar taking place on Thursday, February 18 at 12pm ET, click here.

U of Nine is an app-based solution to help colleges and universities educate students and employees about sexual violence, sexual harassment, intimate partner violence and stalking. A cost-effective way to offer awareness and education content for audiences that can be hard-to-reach.


U of Nine modules are quiz-based, and have been created by ATIXA in collaboration with leading education quiz-based training app company, Trivie.

U of Nine is approaching the problem of campus sexual misconduct from a fresh, potent and technologically savvy perspective – engaging students on these important topics via their mobile devices. ATIXA has assembled two dozen subject matter experts from across higher education to review and develop the gamified, quiz-based content for U of Nine. Each quiz was subjected to intense focus-group analysis, along with feedback from students on pilot-site campuses around the country. Pilot sites ranged from community colleges to four-year residential universities and online institutions. U of Nine allows for longitudinal assessment of attainment of learning outcomes.
