Sexual Misconduct Training

The University’s Prohibition of Sex Discrimination, Sexual Harassment, and Sexual Misconduct policy requires all incoming, returning, and transfer students, as well as all faculty and staff, to be regularly educated on discrimination and harassment prevention, sexual violence, and reporting options and obligations. All students (excluding any student solely enrolled in online courses) are provided training materials and required to complete training at the start of each academic year. Paid university employees, including faculty, staff, and extra help, are expected to complete their designated training annually as well, though this occurs during the spring semester. Though all courses are administered by University Ethics and Compliance Office staff, login support and course management are handled through the training vendor, EverFi via their course functionality. The Title IX Coordinators will be responsible for responding to content-related inquiries.

Student Training


This course is designed for use by new undergraduate students within the University of Illinois system. Haven is a two-part course with the first segment being completed prior to arrival on campus and the second segment notifications being sent approximately 45 days into the fall semester.

Haven Plus

This course is designed for returning undergraduate, graduate and professional students enrolled on-campus at Urbana-Champaign, Chicago, or Springfield.  Haven Plus is a two-part course, with the first segment being completed prior to the start of fall classes and the second segment notifications being sent approximately 45 days into the semester.

Employee Training

Haven for Faculty and Staff

This course is a mandatory requirement for all faculty and staff, including extra help employees of the University of Illinois. The course will be available during the spring semester. Employees who are unable to complete the course online should contact their respective Title IX Coordinator to seek alternate training accommodations.

It is important to note that employees who are also enrolled as students in on-campus courses within the University of Illinois are expected to complete the employee training, in addition to their student training. The reason we required the completion of both courses is that the roles and responsibilities of employees are not addressed in the Haven or Haven Plus programs which focus on the student's perspective, along with prevention tips, bystander intervention, reporting options, and student resources.
