For more information, click the links below or call our office at 314-516-4538.


Reporting an Incident

Reports of sex discrimination can be made online, by phone, or in person. Reports are sent directly to the university's Title IX Coordinator who oversees all sex discrimination matters at the institution. Upon receipt of the report and depending on the detail of the information provided, the institution will take reasonable steps to investigate the matter, stop the harassment, prevent its recurrence and remedy its effects.

This form may be used to report any form of sex discrimination, including sexual harassment or sexual misconduct that you have either experienced or observed. You have the right to remain anonymous on this form but please be aware that the more details we possess, the better our ability to conduct a thorough investigation.
