Sexual Assault

Title IX

If you have been the victim of sexual misconduct, the faculty and staff at UCM want you to know:

You’re Not Alone.

We Can Help.


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.

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. Please see our sexual misconduct policy and complaint resolution procedures.

If you have been the victim of sexual violence, you are encouraged to contact law enforcement or use this 24-hour confidential hotline: 660-441-4855.

For emergencies or for assistance from public safety, please call 660-543-4123.
