Once students complete Part I of Haven, they will have a 30-day intersession. After the intercession, OTC notifies them via email that Part II is available for them to take. Part II is simply an assessment of the student’s attitudes towards a variety of behaviors. For instance, questions concern sexual and relationship violence, social norms around bystander intervention and self-efficacy in intervening and supporting victims of sexual assault, abuse and stalking. The Haven pools results from all students and compares them to the results of the pre-course survey. This helps the Haven to assess the training’s effectiveness at an institutional level.

Note: the Haven does NOT compile student responses to specific questions at the individual level.
