Welcome to Duke! I am the Vice President for Student Affairs. You will be hearing from me throughout the year regarding a variety of issues, including campus safety. One issue related to this is sexual misconduct. Duke’s Student Sexual Misconduct Policy prohibits sexual misconduct — sexual harassment, sexual violence, relationship violence, and stalking — committed by students. https://studentaffairs.duke.edu/conduct/z-policies/student-sexual-misconduct-policy-dukes-commitment-title-ix The Harassment Policy and Procedures prohibits sexual misconduct by faculty and staff. https://web.duke.edu/equity/resources/documents/harassment_policy_and_procedures.pdf
To help you understand the nature of sexual misconduct and how to report it, we require all new graduate and professional students to complete Haven Plus for College, an online, science-based course used on over 500 campuses nationwide that will provide information to help you identify, react, and respond to sexual misconduct, including sexual assault and relationship violence. Haven Plus will also help you learn about healthy relationships, the importance of consent and being a good communicator, and the many ways you can help create the safe, positive campus you want to be a part of.
Students will complete the majority of course before arriving on campus. Approximately 45 days after passing Part One of the course exam, students are required to complete the brief final chapter and follow-up survey.
Please note all survey responses are strictly confidential. The school will only receive information about the student body as a whole and will never see individual students answers. You can feel confident that providing truthful answers–no matter what they are–will not put you at any risk for repercussions.
For Haven Plus, two sections need to be completed to fulfill the requirement. Part One of the course takes roughly 1 hour to complete.
This section includes:
- Modules 1-6
- Post Test
Post Survey occurs 45 days after you complete the Post Test.
You will receive an email asking you to complete the modules.
Due dates for students to complete Haven Plus®:
- **Deadline to complete PART One – August 21, 2017 **
- **Deadline to complete PART Two – October 20, 2017**
It is required that each student complete Haven Plus® by October 20, 2017. Haven Plus® is considered complete after the FINAL EXAM is finished. You must earn a score of 85 or higher to pass.
- Part One – Follow the URL: https://shib.everfi.net/login/default.aspx?id=dukehavenplus
You will be asked to provide your Duke username and password in order to register for the module. Once you have registered, you may complete Part One of Haven Plus. Please note that the module will take approximately one hour to complete so plan your time accordingly.
- Part Two – If you haven’t already, bookmark the Women’s Center website as a source of gender violence prevention information throughout the year.
