The Division of Student Affairs is proud to host a number of programs at the University of Montana to ensure that students thrive.

  • Behavioral Intervention Team (BIT) (formerly the Crisis Intervention and Referral Team, or CIRT) is a campus wide team of appointed professionals responsible for identifying, assessing, and responding to serious concerns and/or disruptive behaviors by students who may threaten the health or safety of the campus community. 

  • Student Affairs Immersion Learning (SAIL) is a competitive intern placement program which allows students to explore career opportunities in UM Student Affairs departments. SAIL interns are selected for their interest in Student Affairs as a career opportunity. For more information, please visit the SAIL website or contact Byron Drake: Student Affairs departments will not be hosting SAIL interns for the 2015/16 academic year. Please contact the coordinator Byron Drake for information on the 2016/17 academic year.

  • Student Affairs Assessment Council (SAAC) is comprised of a representative from each department within Student Affairs, a representative from the Office of Planning, Budget, and Analysis, and a faculty member. These members assess Student Affairs programs in a formal report to ensure that units are maintaining standards of service delivery in accordance with national benchmarks. Internal and external reviews assist in measuring the effectiveness in attaining the department's goals.

  • AlcoholEdu is an online course that students are required to complete as part of their registration.  The course creates an opportunity for the University to collect critical data on student attitudes and behaviors related to alcohol.  This includes students' readiness to change their behavior, protective or high-risk factors they exhibit, and expectations they have towards the use of alcohol.  All of this data will help the University better understand and meet the needs of students.  For more information, please visit the AlcoholEdu website or contact Jamie Boschee:
