Tacked up on bulletin boards across the University of Mary Washington campus are brochures displaying a sketched tree with teal ribbons hanging from the branches.
The UMW Office of Title IX recently received a $300,000 grant from the Office of Violence against Women in 2016. With these funds, the Office of Title IX is working to broaden its scope on campus by holding events and diversifying their mediums of outreach to students.

Throughout the month of April, the University of Mary Washington will be hosting events observing Sexual Assault Awareness Month. These events will be open to the entire UMW community to promote awareness and educate the student body, as well as “shatter the silence,” the event’s motto, within the community.
