Programs and Events

The Title IX Office extensively collaborates with students and other University offices, such as the Safe Office, the Office of the Dean of Students, and Office of Wellbeing, to offer awareness campaigns and prevention programs that seek to promote positive and healthy behaviors that foster healthy, mutually respectful relationships, encourage safe bystander intervention, and seek to change behavior and social norms in healthy and safe directions. Please see the Professional Development Center website for information about upcoming sessions of Title IX programs

 

HAVEN ONLINE STUDENT COURSE

As part of our renewed efforts to prevent gender harassment, sexual assault and other forms of sexual misconduct, the University requires that incoming undergraduate freshmen students complete HAVEN, incoming undergraduate sophomores, juniors, and seniors complete an advanced version of HAVEN, and incoming graduate and professional school students complete HAVEN PLUS. HAVEN and HAVEN PLUS are online courses in which students learn to identify behaviors that constitute sexual harassment, sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking; ways to prevent sexual misconduct through safe bystander intervention; the avenues that are available to report sexual misconduct; and the support resources available to those experiencing sexual misconduct as well to those who may be accused of such misconduct. Students will also be asked to complete a survey.

The online programs will take approximately one hour to complete and may be completed in segments.

Registration for this course is open. Check your inbox for registration information or contact Title IX Coordinator, Tanya Jachimiak at jachimtl@nullwfu.edu or 336.758.7258 for additional information.
