HAVEN Training

The HAVEN Program is a campus initiative to increase support for student survivors of interpersonal violence (stalking, abusive relationships, and sexual assault) and to further the university’s efforts to prevent interpersonal violence. The idea is to create multiple “safe spaces” around the campus for students to go for information, discussion, and referral.  Faculty, staff, and students may attend a HAVEN training session and then receive a sign for their door which indicates that they are a safe space to go to discuss issues around sexual assault, abusive relationships, and stalking. You can also find more about HAVEN training on the Creating Allies to Survivors page.

UNC Safe Zone Training

The Safe Zone program is a symbol of this University's commitment to diversity and inclusiveness. The purpose of Safe Zone is to create a network of allies for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex, queer, and allied (LGBTQIA) students. The desired goal for the Safe Zone program is ultimately to make the University community a safer and more supportive place for people of all sexual orientations, gender identities, and gender expressions. Safe Zone ally trainings are open to faculty, staff, and students and are held throughout the year. Allies receive a Safe Zone sign to display in their offices and living space.
