In the Spring 2011 semester, the Carolina Women’s Center will be hosting training sessions for a new campus-wide initiative designed to help support student victims of abuse, in collaboration the Office of the Dean of Students, and Counseling & Wellness.
The HAVEN Program is a campus-wide initiative to increase support for student survivors of sexual violence, abusive relationships, and stalking, and to further the universities’ efforts to prevent interpersonal violence. Students, faculty, and staff may attend a four-hour HAVEN training session and then receive a sign for their door or laptop which indicates that they are a safe space to go to discuss issues around interpersonal violence. Training dates for the Haven program are below:
Tuesday, January 25th (5-9pm)
Wednesday, February 9th (1-5pm)
Monday, February 21st (5-9pm)

In addition, the Carolina Women’s Center will also be collaborating with Counseling & Wellness, to host training for One Act, an initiative which teaches students how to recognize the early warning signs of interpersonal violence, including sexual assault, stalking, and abusive relationships. Students and faculty who complete the training will be equipped with concrete skills with which to combat abuse, as well as the confidence to act to prevent violence when the warning signs are identified.
Pizza, buttons, pens, t-shirts, and placards are provided to trained students.
