The Montana State University VOICE Center is committed to the belief that all people have the right to live free from violence and the fear of violence. We recognize that sexual and domestic violence are not isolated incidents, but rather are the expression of a pervasive attitude in which violence and control are acted out in a gendered and sexual manner. We believe that sexual violence can best be addressed through social action, education, and advocacy.
The VOICE Center is formed to:
- Provide a safe, highly confidential place on campus for survivors of sexual and domestic violence, offering support, advocacy, and resources.
- Break the silence and raise consciousness surrounding sexual and domestic violence. Silence adds to a survivor's shame and delays recovering and healing.
- Help restore personal power and dignity to survivors of sexual and domestic violence by providing choices and decision-making opportunities.
- Identify and reduce the existence of sexual and domestic violence at Montana State University, and provide education and information to all members of the Montana State University community on issues of sexual assault and relationship violence.
- Ensure effective communication between the VOICE Center and other people who are concerned about sexual and domestic violence.
- Giving Power Back – VOICE Center’s Empowerment-Based Approach
