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.
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. This online module is separate from the in-person Haven training.
Please note: 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 Student Wellness website.

Q: How long is the training? What if I can’t stay for the whole thing?
HAVEN trainings are three 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.
Q. I signed up for a training but my scheduled changed. Now what?
Email email@example.com to cancel your registration for the HAVEN training.
Q: Training times span my usual lunch/dinner time! Will there be food?
Unfortunately, we cannot provide food for trainings, but we want you to be comfortable. Feel free to bring food/snacks and drinks as needed. There will be short breaks in the training, and those are good times for snacks.
Q: No location is listed for my training date. How will I know where to go?
You will be notified of the training location approximately 24-48 business hours before your training. All training locations are located on the UNC-Chapel Hill main campus.
Q: Who attends HAVEN?
Any member of the Carolina community is welcome to participate in Haven training. We have developed separate workshops for students and faculty/staff.
Q: I completed HAVEN training but have lost / have not yet received my door sign. Who should I contact?
If you have questions about your door sign, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Have more questions? Need more information?
Q: I am a graduate student. Which training should I sign up for?
You can attend either training. If you are also an employee at UNC-CH, you may want to attend the faculty/staff training. If not, feel free to sign up for the student training.
