Individual Support and Advocacy
Trained student advocates are available when the University is in session to provide peer counseling, information and referrals to survivors of sexual and relationship violence. Advocacy may include providing accurate information about emergency, medical, legal and academic options available to survivors. Reporting options can include legal as well as university sanctions (if the offender is a student or employee of the university.)
Alternatively, advocates may accompany survivors when accessing medical, legal or other services.
Support groups are available for survivors of acquaintance rape, stranger rape, and attempted rape - recent or in the past. New groups begin each semester and meet weekly. Everyone deserves a chance to heal. Contact SARC for more information at 406-243-5244.
SARC is available to discuss options for dealing with academic hardships resulting from inter-personal violence. Some options include medical withdrawals, dropping classes, incompletes, and delay of exams. All information given to CHC staff is completely confidential.
Books, videos, brochures and information about sexual violence, relationship violence, child sexual abuse, healing and recovery are available to be checked out (free).
SARC Outreach Program
The SARC Outreach Program uses a pro-active and positive approach to sexual and relationship violence prevention. Interactive presentations promote awareness and usage of SARC services and focus on bystander intervention, violence prevention and risk reduction.
Presentations and workshops are available to University students, staff, faculty and Resident Assistants on a variety of issues including assisting and responding to survivors of sexual and relationship violence and more. Classroom and residence hall presentations are available on a variety of topics relating to SARC's mission.
