Student Climate Survey on Sexual Harassment & Gender-Based Violence

By , April 7, 2015 1:28 pm

Climate SurveyUMKC is committed to becoming an exemplar of best practice in promoting a culture of respect and security.  A significant piece of this commitment involves exploration of campus culture, particularly as it relates to the prevalence and reporting of incidents of sexual violence.  The best way to get this information is to ask our students.

A random sample of our students have received an invitation to participate in the Student Climate Survey on Sexual Harassment & Gender-Based Violence.  If you were on e of the students selected to participate, please take the time to respond to this important survey.  The results of the survey will be used in summary form to help make the university as safe as possible by enhancing programs and services preventing and responding to sexual harassment and gender-based violence.

For more information on the survey, please go to

If you need help or would like to learn more about resources, options and supportive action available to you at UMKC, please visit the UMKC Title IX website at

The entire walk will take place on sidewalks, and no streets will be closed.

More than 3,500 walkers are expected to participate in the free event. There is no charge to walk.

Theis Park is located at the intersection of Emanuel Cleaver II Blvd. and Oak St., east of the Plaza and south of the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art.
