Harassment: What It Is and How to Stop It

A major goal of our university community is to provide an environment that supports the highest level of performance and well-being for all our faculty, staff and students. Every employee has the responsibility to maintain a harassment free work and learning environment. Harassment in the workplace or the educational environment is unacceptable conduct.

Anyone employed by the University of Missouri is required to successfully complete an online course, Harassment: What It Is and How to Stop It. This training is available anywhere, 24 hours a day, seven days a week and takes approximately 45 minutes to complete. After reviewing the training materials, you must complete the mastery test with a score of at least 80%. You may review the materials as many times as needed.

Members of the university community who believe they have been harassed should contact their campus Human Resources office or campus Equal Opportunity office (contact information at the bottom of the webpages). See also the Redress Procedures in HR-510 in the HR Policy Manual.

The sexual harassment (including sexual violence) of a student, faculty, or staff member must be reported to your campus’s Title IX coordinator or deputy (contact information at the bottom of the page).
