University of Missouri Non-Discrimination Policies

 KNOW YOUR RIGHTS!  It is against University of Missouri policies to discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, ancestry, religion, sex, pregnancy, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, age, disability, or protected veteran status. We also prohibit sexual misconduct, sexual exploitation, stalking, dating/intimate partner violence, and bias-motivated violence. You can report discrimination to the MU Office for Civil Rights & Title IX, and if you do, you are protected from retaliation. Please take time to learn more about our policies and processes and about resources available through the Division of Inclusion, Diversity & Equity.
