Complete Haven Training

Emory University is actively working to create a campus in which no student experiences violence or fears for their safety. Haven Training is an interactive education platform and is one part of Emory’s comprehensive interpersonal violence prevention program. All incoming students are required to complete Haven Training, which will provide helpful information about preventing and responding to sexual assault, harassment, domestic violence, and stalking.   

The training program is administered in two parts. Part I is approximately 30 minutes long and must be completed before an incoming student is cleared to register for classes. Students should therefore make every effort to complete the training by July 10th to ensure timely registration. Those who fail to complete the training by August 15th will not be permitted to enroll in the fall semester.

Part II of the Haven Training includes a 10 minute survey which will be sent to students via email six weeks after Part I is completed. Part II must be completed by October 10th in order to pre-register for spring classes. 

Please note that portions of the Haven Training might trigger an emotional response for you, regardless of whether you have previously experienced sexual assault or violence yourself. Emory’s Respect Program provides free, confidential, advocacy-based counseling for all Emory Students and is available both in person and remotely. For support, please contact Lauren (LB) Klein, LMSW, at 404.727.1514 or respect@emory.edu. Additionally, you can get 24/7 support via the national hotline of the Rape, Abuse, and Incest National Network (RAINN) at 1.800.656.4673 or through their online counseling service. Mary Lou Greenwood Boice, Associate Dean of Admissions and Financial Aid (available at 404.727.6330 or mboice@emory.edu), and The Rev. Ellen Echols Purdum, Assistant Dean of Student Life and Spiritual Formation (available at 404.727.4538 or ellen.echols.purdum@emory.edu), can assist Candler students as well.

More detailed information regarding the Haven Training, as well as a link to begin the process, can be found on your admissions checklist on your Status Page

Once you have completed Part I of the training, the Admissions Office staff will automatically be notified of your progress and will update your checklist accordingly. This process may take up to five business days after completion of the training, so please be patient as Admissions staff update your records.
