D.A.R.E. University
D.A.R.E. University, also known as D.A.R.E. U, is a an on-line platform for certified D.A.R.E. Officers to meet the need for on-demand, online education to support a diverse spectrum of D.A.R.E. personnel.

D.A.R.E. University will consist of multiple courses and learning tracks built using Talent Learning Management System (LMS). During 2021 preliminary work focused on choosing the LMS software system that would provide the best value for developing engaging learning experiences and integrate seamlessly with existing CRM system, Salesforce.

In 2022, the first phase of D.A.R.E. U will be developed and released mid-year in conjunction with the DOT Enrichment project. The purpose is to provide an 8-10 hour pre-course to prepare each D.A.R.E. Officer candidate before they join a face-to-face DOT course. Future phases will include continuing professional development opportunities for D.A.R.E. Officers, DOT Training teams, and others.

Using an LMS will allow seamless access for all users, at any time, from anywhere, with any device. It will allow for rapid response to training needs throughout the year and will improve both officer skill and relationship with D.A.R.E. America by offering continuous professional development opportunities and a clear path for developing in the role.

D.A.R.E. U will allow D.A.R.E. America to continuously gather candidate training performance data and use it to better develop our training programs. Further, we can easily deploy officer surveys to quickly gather feedback and information, as well as to quickly disseminate training updates when situations or curricula change.
