The Board of Curators, the faculty, and the administration of the University of Missouri recognize the importance of providing a prompt and efficient procedure for fair and equitable resolutions of grievances with the University without fear of prejudice or reprisal for initiating a grievance or participating in its settlement. To the extent possible, all grievances should be settled through informal discussions at the lowest administrative level, and disputed
matters should be processed as formal grievances only when either party feels that a fair and equitable solution has not been reached in the informal discussions.
Preferred Name Policy –
UM-St. Louis is proud to offer a preferred name option for students. If a student decides to add a preferred name, the preferred name will be displayed in the MyView Student Center, faculty class roster, and grade roster. Adding a preferred name does not change a student’s official name as a part of their educational record. A student’s official name is their legal name, which will always be used for financial aid, transcripts, international student I-20s and other documents required by the University.
Preferred names can be added to your student account by accessing the self-service student center in MyView. Link to registration: http://www.umsl.edu/~registration/
