HAVEN (Helping Advocates for Ending Violence Now) is a collaboration between the Equal Opportunity and Compliance office, the Carolina Women’s Center, and Student Wellness. It provides students, faculty, staff and postdoctoral students with tools to be an ally to someone who has experience sexual assault, interpersonal violence, and/or stalking. This training emphasizes the importance of listening, responding compassionately, and connecting survivors to resources on campus and in the community. HAVEN trainings are available for undergraduate students, graduate students, staff, and faculty.


We appreciate your patience as we develop a virtual HAVEN program that is engaging, meets our learning goals, and captures the unique opportunity to practice the skills we teach. We plan to open the virtual HAVEN in January for organizations and departments, and we’re looking forward to hearing and integrating your feedback into the program.

The new HAVEN format will include

  • A Sakai page where you can find and access up-to-date HAVEN materials at any time
  • Three introductory videos that you will watch on your own time
  • One small group training live via Zoom with HAVEN facilitators and other workshop participants

Dates for virtual HAVEN Trainings will begin during the spring semester. To be notified when public trainings become available or to schedule a training for your department or organization, please fill out the form below. If you have questions about the program, please email
