The faculty, administration, staff, and students of the University of Missouri-Kansas City are dedicated to the pursuit of knowledge and the acquisition of skills that will enable us to lead rich and full lives. We can pursue these ends only in a culture of mutual respect and civility. It is thus incumbent upon all of us to create a culture of respect everywhere on campus and at all times through our actions and speech. As a community of learners, we are committed to creating and maintaining an environment on campus that is free of all forms of harassment, intimidation, and discrimination.
Any form of discrimination or coercion based on race, ethnicity, gender, class, religion, sexual orientation, age, rank, or any other characteristic will not be tolerated. Should you, a friend, or a colleague ever experience any action or speech that feels coercive or discriminatory, you should report this immediately using this form and if comfortable, to the course/clerkship department chair or coordinator; to the Associate Dean for Diversity and Inclusion, (at 816-235-1780 in the Dean’s Office Suite); and/or the Title IX/Affirmative Action Office. The Title IX/Affirmative Action Office, which is ultimately responsible for investigating all complaints of discrimination or sexual harassment, is located at 212 Administrative Center, 5115 Oak Street; the office may be contacted at 816-235-6910.
All formal complaints will be addressed and appropriate action taken.
