Statement of Equal Opportunity:

The UM System Board of Curators and UMKC are committed to providing equal opportunities to all students without unlawful discrimination on the basis of their race, color, national origin, ancestry, religion, sex, pregnancy, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, age, disability, protected veteran status, or any other status protected by applicable state or federal law. Compliance with Chapter 600.010 of the UM System Collected Rules and Regulations is monitored by the Office of Affirmative Action, but it is the responsibility of the entire university community to provide equal opportunity through relevant practices, initiatives, and programs. If you or someone you know has experienced discrimination or harassment based on their protected identity, you can make a report using UMKC’s online complaint form: https://info.umkc.edu/title9/affirmative-action-discrimination-report/.

Title IX & Sexual Misconduct:

UM System Collected Rules and Regulations Chapter 600.020 prohibits all students, employees, volunteers, and visitors at UMKC from engaging in sexual misconduct, sexual harassment, stalking on the basis of sex, dating/intimate partner violence, and sexual exploitation. If you or someone you know has experienced sexual misconduct, you can access the Roos Respond Resource Guide by visiting http://info.umkc.edu/title9/ or by contacting UMKC’s Title IX Coordinator, Dr. Sybil Wyatt, at 816-235-6910 or wyattsb@umkc.edu. Additionally, you can make a report of sexual misconduct using UMKC’s online complaint form: https://info.umkc.edu/title9/reporting/report-online/.

Nearly all UMKC employees, including your course instructors, are required to report any known or suspected sexual misconduct to the Office of Affirmative Action and cannot offer confidentiality in regard to any disclosures of sexual misconduct. However, students may seek confidential guidance from these resources:
