It is the policy of the University of Missouri to provide equal opportunity for all enrolled students and applicants for admission to the University on the basis of merit without discrimination on the basis of their race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, national origin, age or disability, or Vietnam era veteran status. Sexual harassment shall be considered discrimination because of sex.

To ensure compliance with this policy, all University of Missouri prospective or enrolled students have available to them the Student Discrimination Grievance Procedure for resolving complaints and/or grievances regarding alleged discrimination.

Any student wishing to file a grievance or informal concern/complaint with the University may do so using the grievance inquiry form. A staff member from Student Conduct and Community Standards will then call to schedule an appointment to review procedures and determine the best course of action. Students may refer to the University of Missouri policy 600.060 Equity Resolution Process for Resolving Complaints of Discrimination and Harassment against the University of Missouri. A grievance or informal concern/complaint may be submitted on a variety of issues including, but not limited to:
