TEAL Peer Educators

TEAL (Team for Empowerment, Advocacy, and Leadership) is a group of trained students who provide peer mentoring services to UMW students concerned about sex or gender-based violence. TEAL partners with clubs, classes, residence halls, and other groups across campus to create student-centered programming and training. TEAL peer educators are not required to report to the Office of Title IX.
