Title IX: Sexual Harassment: University of Montana-Missoula (MT): (10126001)

On May 9, 2013, OCR and the U.S. Department of Justice reached agreement with the University of Montana in Missoula, Montana regarding the University’s handling of allegations and reports of sexual assault and harassment at its Missoula campus.  The agreement resolved OCR’s compliance review and the investigation initiated by the Justice Department.  The University agreed to revise its policies, procedures and investigative practices to provide a grievance procedure that ensures prompt and equitable resolution of sexual harassment and sexual assault allegations; adequately investigate and respond to allegations of retaliation by students who have alleged sexual assault; take sufficient effective action to fully eliminate a hostile environment based on sex, prevent its recurrence and address its effects; ensure that the individuals designated to coordinate its Title IX efforts receive adequate training and coordinate these efforts effectively; and revise the University's notice of nondiscrimination to adequately inform students that sex discrimination is prohibited.
