Tremblay believes it is possible that the agreement between the Department of Justice and the University of Montana could serve as a model for other colleges and universities to follow due to the amount of policy and training emphasized. “We often see a lack of effective or recent training, and a lack of policies to help direct both colleges and police departments around the country on sexual violence,” Tremblay said. “If we don’t understand the impacts of trauma on victims of sexual violence, it’s often misinterpreted.”
