Students or staff who have experienced any form of sexual discrimination, harassment, and/or misconduct are encouraged to report the incident, with an option to do so virtually from the website.
The Violence Prevention and Response Program offers services including crisis intervention and advocacy for survivors/victims of sexual violence, relationship abuse, and stalking, as well as offering training and other programs to prevent gender-based violence, sexual violence, stalking, and relationship abuse at UMKC.
