The university is taking proactive steps to raise awareness of issues surrounding sexual assault, including consent, alcohol consumption, and bystander intervention.
This is done partly through the online Haven and Haven for Faculty and Staff programs, which are mandatory for all new students and employees, and available via my State to all members of the university community.
Mississippi State has implemented Haven, an online training system, as a key component of our efforts to raise awareness of sexual assault and related issues.
Haven covers subjects like effective consent, alcohol consumption, stalking, harassment, and dating violence in a clear, accessible and interactive manner.
All course syllabi should contain the university’s standardized statement on Title IX and sexual misconduct.
The statement is: MSU is committed to complying with Title IX, a federal law that prohibits discrimination, including violence and harassment, based on sex.
Office of Violence Prevention: The Violence Prevention Office promotes awareness of the realities of dating violence, sexual assault and stalking.
