CONWAY, SC (WMBF) - Colleges and universities across the country are being pushed to provide students education about sexual violence and prevention. This fall, Coastal Carolina University started a course called Haven.
It's an interactive online program that educates students about sexual violence differently based on whether they are male or female. All freshman and transfer students, student athletes and members of sororities and fraternities were asked to take it before coming to campus this fall.
It focuses on situations students may find themselves in as a potential victim, and how to stand up as a bystander. From now on, all new students will take it when they attend CCU.
