As you walk around campus, you will see placards (similar to that to the right) on your faculty or staff member’s office door or on a student’s laptop which states that they have been HAVEN trained and will be supportive of survivors of interpersonal violence. You may also see HAVEN logo buttons and t-shirts around campus. This visibility of allies to survivors helps create a safer space on campus for all students. If you see a placard, button or t-shirt, thank them for being an ally!

The HAVEN Program (Helping Advocates for Violence Ending Now) is a collaboration between the Equal Opportunity & Compliance, The Carolina Women’s Center, The Office of the Dean of Students, and Student Wellness. It is intended to provide students, faculty or staff with tools and skills to be an ally to someone who has experienced sexual or interpersonal (relationship) violence or stalking. The 3 hour training emphasizes the importance of listening, responding compassionately, and connecting survivors to resources on campus and in the community. There are 3 options for Haven training:
• Haven For Students
• Haven For Faculty and Staff
• Haven Refresher Training: designed for any member of the UNC-CH community who has previously been Haven trained and would like to stay up to date on their skills and knowledge of University policy and resources.
