Discrimination Prevention and Title IX training

At the University of Missouri System, we are committed to providing a positive learning and workplace environment that supports and promotes inclusion, respect and diversity for our faculty, staff and students. We help support that commitment by ensuring members of the university community are educated and informed through biennial training courses like this one, as well as a refresher resource on alternating years.


About the training and refresher

Employees, student hires and other workers within the University of Missouri System are required to successfully complete an online compliance training module titled Building a Foundation: Discrimination Prevention and Title IX every other year. During the training window, the training is available anywhere, 24 hours a day, seven days a week and takes approximately 60 minutes to complete. After reviewing the training materials, you must complete the mastery test with a score of at least 80% in order to meet the annual training requirement. You may review the materials as many times as needed.

On years where training is not required, the University encourages faculty, staff and student hires to complete a training refresher which is also available in myLearn.

Upon completion of this training module or refresher, you will be able to:

  • Identify who is protected against discrimination and understand intent.
  • Recognize harassment in the workplace.
  • Recall who is protected against retaliation and tips to avoid retaliation.
  • Know special rules for sex-based discrimination.
  • Understand the university’s reporting of sex/gender-based discrimination.
  • Understand the university’s reporting of non-sex/gender-based discrimination.
  • Locate and follow the process for resolving complaints.
  • Know what to do and understand your rights if accused.

Note: Additional training modules, such as the Office of Information Technology's MakeITSafe Security Awareness Training, may also be applicable in fulfillling all annual training requirements.
