MISSOULA- The University of Montana is getting nearly $300,000 from the U.S. Department of Justice to make their Missoula campus safer for women.
The Office of Violence Against Women grant will be used to expand, reorganize, and streamline the campus-wide approach to addressing dating and social violence, including the creation a new Director of Student Assault Programming position.
The money is especially timely in the face of several sexual assault claims made by and against UM students.
