UMW Observes National Domestic Violence Awareness Month

A message from the Center for Prevention & Education.

Dear UMW Community,

The University of Mary Washington’s Office of Title IX and the Center for Prevention & Education would like to update you on some important policy news and upcoming events.

The University of Mary Washington will observe National Domestic Violence Awareness month in October. The month-long observance includes lots of important events where #EaglesPledgePurple. The Center for Prevention & Education encourages you to get involved by joining our monthly newsletter, applying to become a TEAL Peer Educator, or following us on Facebook and/or Instagram (@umwcpe).

In policy news, on Friday, September 13, 2019, the UMW Board of Visitors approved revisions to the Policy on Sexual and Gender-Based Harassment and Other Forms of Interpersonal Violence. This Policy is reviewed annually.

The University of Mary Washington remains committed to continuing to provide education, outreach, support, and resources to our students and employees and to create an environment free of sex or gender discrimination. If you have any questions about the 2019-2020 Policy, please contact me at 540-654-5656, slucaswa@umw.edu, or in person at Fairfax House (white house on College Avenue).
