The University of Montana has contracted National Coalition Building Institute Missoula to provide a limited number of free workshops and trainings to classes, departments and groups during spring semester.

NCBI, a local chapter of the nonprofit NCBI International, combats prejudice and violence. The organization offers trainings as an effective way to build group cohesion, increase collaboration and explore issues of equality and diversity. Participants learn how to build inclusive and welcoming environments, tackle divisive issues and respond to mistreatment and violence.

Trainings available to UM include “Building Bridges Across Group Lines,” “Leadership Clinic,” “Controversial Issues,” “Allies for LGBTQI Equality” and more. NCBI also can provide custom workshops to fit specific needs. The organization previously has provided training for campus departments and groups such as Human Resource Services, the School of Law, Student Assault Resource Center and the Department of Athletics.
