Who We Are

Peer Sexual Misconduct Advisors (PSMA) are confidential peer advisors trained in Title IX policy, procedure and emotional support resources. PSMAs are RC and WC students who are selected through an application process and complete extensive training from the Title IX Coordinator, URPD, CAPS, St. Mary’s Hospital, Safe Harbor, Spiders for Spiders, the Virginia Anti-Violence Project, and Common Ground. All contact is confidential because the PSMAs are not employees of the University.
