Title IX

The University of Central Missouri (UCM) believes that all students should have the opportunity to learn in an educational environment free from discrimination. Sexual harassment of students, including sexual violence and other forms of sexual misconduct, interferes with this right and will not be tolerated.

The statistics on sexual violence are deeply troubling, and the impact of sexual violence on students can be devastating. According to the "Dear Colleague" letter released by the Office of Civil Rights in April, 2011, "A report prepared for the National Institute of Justice found that about 1 in 5 women are victims of completed or attempted sexual assault while in college. The report also found that approximately 6.1 percent of males were victims of completed or attempted sexual assault during college." At UCM, we believe these statistics are unacceptable and we are committed to both preventing instances of sexual violence and actively assisting those who have been victimized.

UCM is committed to protecting students in connection with all the academic, educational, extracurricular, athletic, and other programs of the school, whether those programs take place in a school's facilities, on a school bus, at a class or training program. UCM is fully committed to developing and fully implementing effective sexual harassment policies and to providing training on this issue for students and staff.
