Haven is a sexual violence response center that provides confidential care, support, advocacy, and trauma-informed clinical services for survivors of sexual assault, intimate partner violence, child/family abuse, stalking, and/or harassment.
At Haven, we believe survivors. You deserve support that honors your experience and needs. We will work with you to explore your options. Violence is always about power and control and never your fault.
We see sexual violence as an issue that impacts everyone, whether you are a person of color, woman, queer, trans, nonbinary, disabled, coming from a low-income background, or an immigrant. In collaboration with on- and off-campus partners, Haven offers sexual assault awareness and prevention programming that addresses rape culture, power and privilege, trauma, and support services.
As a center, we are working from a survivor-centric model that is intended to honor and empower individuals to define their experiences and healing process. We understand that services historically have not always met the needs of all survivors.
You have a right to:
- Seek out confidential resources
- Pursue medical attention
- And/or go through the Equity Grievance Process
All survivors have a right to be free from free from victim-blaming, homophobia, transphobia, and/or racial harassment. Haven is available to provide options and facilitate finding support.
- Individual counseling
- Group therapy
- Crisis intervention
- Connecting students with off-campus and nonaffiliated support services if desired

Sexual assault, relationship violence, and stalking can impact people of all gender identities, sexual orientations, races, ethnicities, ages, socio-economic statuses, and national origins.
We encourage all members of our campus community to seek support for and report all incidents of sexual harassment and sexual misconduct directly to the Title IX Officer, Marilyn D. Rugg at firstname.lastname@example.org or 315-228-7288.
We are committed to the goals of fairness and equity in all aspects of the educational enterprise, and to a learning and living environment where all members of the community feel safe and respected. Acts of sexual harassment, sexual assault, relationship violence, and stalking are serious violations of our community values. The university will not tolerate sexual misconduct, or other forms of sexual violence or nonconsensual sexual activity, and will respond promptly and equitably to these incidents and to any student, staff, or faculty member who reports such incidents.
