Information for Victims

Assistance for Survivors

Survivors may seek assistance from caring campus employees, including faculty, staff, residence hall assistants, or advisors. In order to ensure that the University can do everything possible to provide assistance to survivors and stop sexual harassment, University employees are required to report information they receive about allegations of sexual misconduct to the Title IX Coordinator. At the request of a survivor, employees may withhold the survivor’s name. However, the University is limited in its ability to effectively respond without full information

Below are descriptions of resources to assist students in making their choices about reporting instances of sexual misconduct. For more detailed information about each of the resources listed below, please see: www.missoula911.com.

*INFORMAL REMEDIES

Examples of informal remedies may include: shielding a student from ongoing contact with an individual; issuing an administrative no-contact order; assigning an individual to a different lab or other clinical setting; asking an administrative authority to speak to the individual to express serious concern about a behavior; reminding the individual of policies and definitions relating to sexual misconduct; offering counseling targeted to addressing sexual aggression; and reorganizing housing assignments so that students can feel safer. Informal remedies do not preclude formal discipline.

*FORMAL COMPLAINTS

Bringing a formal complaint will lead to an investigation and possibly a hearing, and can result in punitive outcomes. Filing a complaint is often the best way to seek protection from future harm. The student bringing the complaint retains considerable control, although not total, as the process unfolds.

*CONFIDENTIALITY LEVEL

STRICTLY CONFIDENTIAL

These conversations are all confidential and can be anonymous. Except in rare, extreme circumstances, nothing will be shared without your explicit permission.

MOSTLY CONFIDENTIAL

These conversations are kept as confidential as possible, but information about incidents of sexual misconduct must be shared with relevant administrators, the Title IX Coordinator, and in some cases law enforcement, so that action can be taken if necessary for reasons of safety. In planning any response, the wishes of the person reporting are given full consideration.

CONFIDENTIAL ACCORDING TO STATE LAW

Exploratory conversations are confidential. Police reports with personally identifiable information removed may be available to the public upon request.
