Title IX Online Education

Haven® for Faculty and Staff

Georgia State University is proud partner with EverFi to offer online education to employees. As part of our comprehensive preventative and compliance educational sessions, Georgia State University invites all employees to complete Haven® for Faculty and Staff.

Haven – Understanding Sexual Assault™ is a two part, online sexual violence awareness and prevention course. One in five college women will experience some form of non-consensual sexual activity by graduation. Additionally, one in 71 men will experience rape at some point in their lives, with one in six victimized with sexually abusive experiences by the age of 18. The widespread impact of sexual violence on students presents an urgent and pressing challenge for our nation’s campuses. Haven addresses the critical issues of sexual assault; relationship violence, and stalking, which impact countless college students across the country. Haven uses a population-level approach to educate all students and employees on the issues associated with sexual assault and relationship violence, taking into account their unique perspectives and experiences, providing:

  • Key definitions and statistics
  • Reflective and personalized content
  • Bystander skill and confidence-building strategies
  • Campus-specific policies, procedures and resources
  • Rich data summaries to inform future programming
