Discrimination and harassment

MU Office for Civil Rights and Title IX

The Office for Civil Rights and Title IX coordinates nondiscrimination and equity efforts across campus. MU policies prohibit discrimination and harassment based on:

  • Race
  • Color
  • National origin
  • Ancestry
  • Religion
  • Sexual orientation
  • Gender identity
  • Gender expression
  • Age
  • Genetic information
  • Disability
  • Protected veteran status
  • Sex (including sexual assault, stalking, dating/intimate partner violence and pregnancy)

This office is responsible for enforcing the university's nondiscrimination policies, educating the community about MU policies and practices, and connecting people to resources that can support them if they experience discrimination or retaliation.

If you experience any form of discrimination or harassment, you can make a report to the Office for Civil Rights and Title IX. An investigator will then contact you to discuss your options and rights, and can investigate whether university policies were violated. Your report is confidential, and it is up to you whether you wish to contact the police.

For additional information about how to make a report, see the Office for Civil Rights and Title IX website.
