Reporting Toolkit

Welcome to your Reporting Toolkit! On this page you will find helpful Title IX information and resources. The Title IX Office is always available to discuss concerns or cases of possible sex discrimination, sexual harassment and/or sexual misconduct. 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.

The following person serves as the campus Title IX Coordinator and is designated to handle inquiries regarding the nondiscrimination policies and Title IX compliance:

UMSL Information

To ensure that we are doing all we can to create and preserve a safe and inclusive environment for our campus community, we are requiring that all new students view and complete the Not Anymore training from Student Success™. This video-based, online module will assist in helping students develop strategies to prevent and protect themselves and others from sexual violence and harassment. Through interactive videos and activities, the program covers topics such as consent, sexual assault, bystander intervention, dating/intimate partner violence, and stalking.

Program Instructions

Not Anymore is currently available and students are required to complete the program by the last day of their first semester. Students must earn at least a 70% on the program; that means retaking the post-test until the score is earned.

To enter the program, log on at the link listed below and follow the instructions provided. You will be able to use this link to re-enter the program without needing to start over if you wish to pause your progress and resume at a later time. If you run into problems taking or re-entering the program, do not start over. Contact the program support team through the site's HELP button and they will assist you.

You will receive follow-up contacts from Student Success™ for refreshers on important topics covered in the module. We don't just want you to think about this program only once - these issues should always be at the forefront of your mind!

If at any time you have questions or concerns regarding the program requirements or content, please contact the UMSL Title IX Office. For technical difficulties, contact Student Success™ through the program HELP button or at terrylynn.pearlman@studentsuccess.org.

Thank you in advance for your participation. Through your support, Missouri S&T is becoming a nationwide model for a safer campus community.

Not Anymore Training

Voluntary Reporting:
Students, volunteers and visitors of the university who have experienced any form of sex discrimination, including sexual harassment or sexual misconduct, are encouraged to report the incident promptly to the Title IX Coordinator.

CR&R 600.020(E)(1)


Mandated Reporting:
Any employee of the university who becomes aware of sex discrimination as defined in this policy (including sexual harassment, sexual misconduct, stalking on the basis of sex, dating/intimate partner violence or sexual exploitation) is a mandated reporter, regardless of whether the recipient of the behavior is a student, employee, volunteer, or visitor of the university.

CR&R 600.020(E)(2)


Harassment: What it is and How to Stop it
In accordance with providing a positive discrimination-free environment, the university intends that sexual harassment in the work place or the educational environment is unacceptable conduct. Sexual harassment is subject to discipline, up to and including separation from the institution. This policy aims for an increased awareness regarding sexual harassment by making available information, education and guidance on the subject for the university community.

HR-510 Sexual Harassment Policy

Employees with a legal obligation or privilege of confidentiality (including health care providers, counselors) are not considered mandated reporters and are not required to report when the information is learned in the course of a confidential communication.

This also means that the employee seeking the exemption is employed by the university for that specific purpose and was acting in that capacity when the confidential disclosure was made. If the information is not learned in the course of confidential communication (for example, behavior is observed in class) then the employee has the same obligation as a mandated reporter.

Consistent with the law and upon approval from the Office of General Counsel, campuses may also designate non-professional counselors or advocates as confidential for purposes of this policy and, therefore, excluded from the definition of mandated reporters.

However, these individuals may be required once per month to report to the Title IX Coordinator aggregate, non-personally identifiable information regarding incidents of sex discrimination reported to them. The aggregate data report may contain general information about individual incidents of sexual violence such as the nature, date, time, and general location of the incident. Confidentiality in this context is not the same as privilege under the law.
