Educational Prevention Programs/Training

HAVEN

Fresno State understands the necessity to educate the University community regarding Sexual Assault, Domestic Violence, Dating Violence, and Stalking. In 2015, the Division of Student Affairs and Enrollment Management collaborated with Human Resources to implement the Haven online student training as the primary ongoing prevention and awareness program for all new and returning students at Fresno State. Haven is an online platform that addresses the critical issues of sexual assault, relationship violence, and stalking. This training focuses on identifying behaviors and recognizing situations that could potentially result in sexual violence, bystander intervention, building healthy relationships, defining “consent”, and helping students understand and overcome the cultural contributors to sexual assault. All new and returning students are required to complete this training prior to registration.

Rape Aggression Defense (RAD)

The Fresno State Police Department is staffed with certified instructors in self-defense and Rape Aggression Defense (RAD). RAD is a Basic Physical Defense class for women. RAD focuses on reducing the probability of women becoming victims by teaching practical and efficient skills necessary to become confident and active participants in their own personal safety. Educational topics discussed are: local and national statistics; sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking definitions; consent; date rape; dating violence; bystander intervention; and the risks of personal safety (risk awareness, risk reduction, risk recognition, and risk avoidance.) Along with the educational component, the participants practice effective hands-on physical defense techniques and may participate in physical defense simulation exercises. The RAD class is open to all women (students, faculty, staff, and the general public) ages 12 and up. Contact the Fresno State Police Department at 559.278.8400, for information, or email rad@csufresno.edu.
