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 is a campus-wide initiative to increase support for student survivors of interpersonal violence (stalking, abusive relationships, and sexual assault) and to further the universities’ efforts to prevent interpersonal violence. The idea is to create multiple “safe spaces” around the campus for students to know there are individuals trained to be sensitive and to connect you with appropriate resources on campus. Faculty, staff, and students may attend a HAVEN training session.
HAVEN is sponsored by the Carolina Women’s Center, the Office of the Dean of Students and the Interpersonal Violence Prevention Coordinator. The program was initially funded in part by the Robertson Collaborative Grant program and is also funded by a Parent’s Council grant for 2011-2012.
