How to find help
All students should know how and where to report discrimination, including sexual harassment. Such reports are addressed equitably and promptly.
The Title IX Coordinator in the Office of Equal Opportunity and Affirmative Action is responsible for responding to complaints about sexual harassment and assault, along with other grievances. The office hired an additional staff member in 2012 to ensure we can respond as quickly and effectively as possible to reports of sexual harassment. All students, employees and university affiliates should feel comfortable calling the office to confidentially report an incident.
The Student Assault Resource Center, located in the Curry Health Center, provides free and confidential support for those affected by sexual violence.
UM has teamed up with the City of Missoula to ensure that victims of sexual violence have a single place to turn for help: missoula911.com. Resources are available for reporting a crime and accessing mental and physical health services. The information is also in booklet form. All students living in campus residence halls received a copy in fall 2012.
UM also has its own website that provides comprehensive resources about all forms of sexual misconduct prevention and response.
As front-line responders to any campus incident, the Office of Public Safety also provides valuable information about how students can stay safe on campus.
