Student Advocacy Resource Center (SARC)

 Who We Are

The Student Advocacy Resource Center celebrates diversity, supports the right of all students to pursue success in our academic community, openly respects and cares for everyone, and is committed to a campus free from discrimination and unwelcome physical, sexual, emotional or social coercion. It is our goal that every interaction and every communication be respectful, considerate, professional, and supportive.

If you have experienced sexual assault, relationship violence, bullying, intimidation, or discrimination, SARC is here to help you. Our services are comprehensive and we actively listen, believe in, assist and support our clients. Based upon your decisions and choices, we also provide referrals, connections and advocacy within the justice, medical, and social service systems. Our work is personal for you and your circumstances. All our services are confidential and free.


The SARC office is providing remote/telehealth services for the 2020-2021 academic year in an effort to reduce interactions and possible exposure to COVID-19.

It is important to know that we will not always have staff available in our physical office space. Someone is available from 9am-4pm, but may be in a remote appointment. Please call 406-243-4429 to learn how to access services. 

We value your health and well-being, and want you to know that we will continue to offer services to you via phone, email, and/or video chat (Zoom) options during our regular business hours [9am-4pm, Monday-Friday] and after-hours support through our 24-hr support line (406)-243-6559.

Please call our Main Office (406)-243-4429 or our 24-hr Support Line (406)-243-6559 to be connected to a SARC clinician/advocate about scheduling services.

We will continue to offer “Drop-in” services for both new and returning clients via telehealth options. SARC is working hard to ensure all UM students have equal access to our services. We have confidential space available in order to make sure you can safely access our services.

Please call our 24-hr support line (406)-243-6559 to connect with a clinician for immediate support.
