The HAVEN Program (Helping Advocates for Violence Ending Now) is a campus initiative to train non-employee students how to help a friend who has experienced interpersonal violence (harassment and stalking, abusive relationships, and sexual assault) by connecting those students to reporting options and confidential support services. Research tells us that the first person that many survivors of violence tell about their experience is a friend; the main goal of the training is to help ensure that students in need receive appropriate information and resources. The HAVEN program is a collaboration between the Title IX Coordinator, Deputy Title IX Coordinator, The Carolina Women’s Center, The Office of the Dean of Students, and Student Wellness.
UNC-Chapel Hill has partnered with EverFi, whose mission, in part, is to help educate students about sexual assault and relationship violence prevention in high schools and higher education institutions across the country. Everfi has designed an online, research-based program, also called Haven, which allows students to learn about important prevention skills and strategies.
Please note: Starting in January 2014, all students who sign up to attend HAVEN in-person training must first complete the EverFi online module, Haven. Instructions on how to complete this module are available on the HAVEN Registration page, which requires an onyen sign-in.

HAVEN trainings are four hours long. Participants are required to arrive on time and stay for the entire training. We have found that participants who come late or leave early are disruptive to others in the training.
