Marital & Family Status

Pursuant to Montana law and University of Montana policy, the University does not discriminate on the basis of marital or family status.  Discrimination based on marital or family status is the denial of privileges or benefits of education or employment, or the denial of the opportunity to participate in university activities, because of an individual's marital or family status.

The Montana Supreme Court has recognized that the term "marital status" encompasses an individual's status as being married, unmarried, divorced, or widowed, as well as the identity and occupation of an individual’s spouse.
