MAV's Mission

Mav seeks to break the link which exists between traditional norms of masculinity-the ways men are taught to behave-and violence. It challenges young men to redefine male and female relationships in an equitable manner; to resolve conflicts effectively; to develop meaningful friendships with other men; and to appropriately manage anger and fear.

What is MAV?

Men Against Violence (MAV) is a peer education team at Texas State. It is an educational team at Texas State. It is an educational resource for the Texas State community of faculty, staff, student organizations, residence halls and the surrounding communities. The MAV members are trained to present the following violence related programs:

  • He Said She Said: Did Anyone Say Yes?
  • Alcohol Bystander Intervention Training
  • Hate Wears Many Faces
  • Red Flags in Relationships
