Awareness & Educational Initiatives

Haven for Students

Haven-Understanding Sexual Assault™ is a two-part, online sexual violence awareness and prevention course. One in five college women will experience some form of non-consensual sexual activity by graduation. Additionally, one in 71 men will experience rape at some point in their lives, with one in six victimized with sexually abusive experiences by the age of 18. The widespread impact of sexual violence on students presents an urgent and pressing challenge for the nation's campuses. Haven addresses the critical issues of sexual assault, relationship violence and stalking, which impact countless college students across the country. 

Haven for Employees

Tell someone you trust if you are a survivor of violence, get help needed to heal. Sometimes the fear of not being believed cripples us to sharing our story with others. Speaking up helps to remove the shame. If you are a survivor of violence you have no reason to be ashamed, you did not do anything wrong and we believe you.

Request Training/Program

The Title IX & Compliance Office offers a wide range of programs by request, facilitated by trained peer health educators or professional staff. Programs are designed for small groups (maximum of 40 participants), which allows interaction and more in-depth discussions around the definition of consent, components of healthy relationships, bystander empowerment, supporting survivors, and various types of violence. Programs are typically requested by student organizations, departments and course instructors.

Programs should be requested a minimum of two weeks prior to the requested date. Student Health Promotion staff will attempt to accommodate requests. Requested programs typically last one hour. All materials needed to facilitate the program will be provided, but there may be a need for the requester to provide audiovisual equipment (laptop, projector and screen).
