Following months of controversy surrounding sexual harassment policies on campus, the University of Montana has adopted less restrictive guidelines than those proposed by the Department of Justice (DOJ) and Department of Education (DOE). The Washington Free Beacon previously reported that the DOJ and DOE expanded its definition of sexual harassment on campuses to include speech. This expansion caused a firestorm of criticism led by the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE). The DOJ and DOE wrote that their expanded definition of sexual harassment would serve as “blueprint for colleges and universities throughout the country.”
