Reporting an Incident

Montana Tech separates the university’s reporting structure into the categories listed below in order to route the incident report to the correct office. If you have questions or concerns about which report to use, please contact Dean of Student Affairs Carrie Vath.

Report an Academic Dishonesty Violation

Academic violations include cheating, plagiarism or falsifying official records related to the University, unauthorized signatures, tampering with course material, etc. General classroom misbehavior is considered a non-academic violation (see below). If you have questions about whether a behavior is considered academic misconduct, please conduct the Office of Academic Affairs at 406-496-4127.

Report a Non-Academic Student Conduct Violation

Non-Academic violations include any behavior that is not related to an allegation of cheating or plagiarism (e.g. alcohol, drugs, threatening behavior, vandalism, disorderly conduct, etc.). If you have questions about whether a behavior is considered a violation, please contact Dean of Student Affairs Carrie Vath.

Report a Concerning Behavior

The Montana Tech Behavioral Intervention Team (BIT) has developed a form to be completed by any Faculty, Staff or Student who is concerned about an individual’s behavior. Concerning behaviors include, but are not limited to: emotional distress, suicide ideation, disordered eating, self-injury, threatening behavior towards others, and suspected substance abuse.  If you have questions about whether a behavior is considered a “concerning behavior”, please contact the Office of Student Affairs (496-4198).

Report a Title IX Violation

Title IX violations include sexual assault, harassment, dating and relationship violence, discrimination, stalking, and retaliation. If you have questions about whether an incident is considered a Title IX violation, please contact Vanessa Van Dyk in the Office of Human Resources.
