Haven Project

IUP Haven Project

The Haven Project is designed to increase and improve counseling and advocacy services for students who experience violence. The Haven Project also offers prevention education about stalking, domestic/dating violence, and sexual assault.

It is a collaboration with University Police, the Pennsylvania State Police, Indiana Borough Police, the Alice Paul House, the Center for Health and Well-Being’s Haven Project and Counseling Center.

Why the Haven Project?

In 2002, Health AWAREness and a marketing class conducted an on-campus survey of students at Indiana University of Pennsylvania (IUP). Researchers found that 87 percent of the students surveyed indicated that sexual assault was a concern among students on campus. In addition, 67 percent of those surveyed reported knowing someone who had been sexually assaulted. However, in 2002, only seven cases of forcible sex offenses were reported to University Police officials. Clearly, most incidents of violence were never reported. The Haven Project was originally designed to help women access needed services to progress academically and to work to eliminate sexual violence. Services have been expanded to all students, regardless of gender.


IUP is committed to ending all forms of interpersonal violence.
