MISSOULA- In its campaign to end sexual violence, the University of Montana created a mandatory tutorial to educate students about sexual violence.
Many students told us they don't like it, and think it's a waste of time. All students are required to complete the Personal Empowerment through Self Awareness online tutorial and quiz before they can register for their spring semester.
UM says they did this as a public health approach to educate everyone with the same information. PETSA co-writer Danielle Wozniak said the idea is to ensure everyone has the acts and understand laws related to assault.
"And also everybody felt empowered to do their part to help create the kind of campus that is safe and healthy for everyone."
