All UM employees are required to know about discrimination and sexual misconduct laws and policies. To help train employees on these laws and policies, the University has developed a 20-minute tutorial on discrimination and sexual harassment prevention. The Discrimination Prevention Tutorial is an opportunity to learn about what constitutes discrimination and harassment, how to report an incident, and what University procedures are in place to respond to a report. This tutorial replaces the Equal Opportunity and Affirmative Action training that has been offered at New Employee Orientation.
If you have any questions or concerns about the tutorial, please contact the Office of Equal Opportunity and Affirmative Action at 243-5710 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
UM employees are mandatory reporters when it comes to students disclosing information about sexual misconduct, but many people don’t know what that means. This session will focus on what UM employees need to know about Title IX and student sexual misconduct. It will outline the University’s Discrimination Policy and Procedures for a University investigation, how to respond if a student shares that they have been the victim of sexual misconduct, mandated reporting, what support and interim measures are available to students who report to the Title IX Coordinator, what confidentiality means in this context and how we are looking to change our campus culture through bystander intervention.
Facilitators: Jessica Weltman is the Director of Equal Opportunity and Affirmative Action and Title IX Coordinator for the University of Montana.
Drew Colling is the University Prevention Coordinator and Director of the Student Advocacy Resource Center (SARC) at the Curry Heath Center.
