Online Sexual Assault Prevention Program

 

At UCM, we believe all students should have the opportunity to learn in a safe and civil environment, free from sexual and interpersonal violence. Therefore, all new freshmen, new graduate students and new transfer students are required to complete an online sexual assault prevention education program at the beginning of their college career at UCM. This program, formerly called Haven, will take approximately 45 minutes to complete.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why is UCM requiring students to take this Sexual Assault Prevention program?

The program helps students understand healthy and unhealthy relationships and resources available for those who may experience sexual assault, intimate partner violence, and stalking.

The 2013 federal Campus Sexual Violence Act (SaVE Act) now requires all new students to complete a sexual and interpersonal violence prevention education; this program fulfills this requirement.

Do I have to be 18 to take this program?

No, the minimum age requirement to take this course is 17 years old.

Do I still have to complete this program if I took it (or Haven) at another university?

Yes, the course has UCM specific information and we don't have access to other schools' records.

I attended UCM as an undergraduate and took Haven then. Why do I have to take this program again as a graduate student?

This program is updated each year with new content, and the program for graduate students includes content about scenarios specific to graduate school. We want to be sure all new students have the most recent and accurate information. 

But I am single and do not date, so why do I have to take this course?

Even students who are not in an intimate relationship need to recognize healthy and unhealthy relationships in others and know how to safely intervene if they observe problematic behavior. Whether you plan to be in a relationship or not, this information will help you navigate future school and work environments.

How will I know when I am done with the course?

To fulfill UCM's requirement you must complete Part 1 and the Exam. However, to complete the entire program, students should also finish Part 2.

How long will it take to complete this program?

The answer to this question depends on the speed of your internet service and how much you choose to interact with the activities provided. Using high speed internet, most students complete Part 1 of the program in about 45 minutes. Remember that you may log in and out of the course. Part 2 of the course, which you complete 45 days after you finished Part 1, only takes about 15-20 minutes.

Will this be confidential? Will anyone be able to see my answers?

Yes it is confidential, and no, your name will not be linked with your answers. The UCM staff who implement the program will know if you have completed the course and your final exam score, but not your individual responses or answers to questions. Your name and responses are separated and kept in separate data storage facilities. This program has been designed to protect your privacy.
