Violence prevention and response

The UMKC Women's Center serves as a victim advocate to assist students, faculty and staff in understanding various resources, policies and procedures related to violence and safety at UMKC. Women's Center staff are available to provide support and guidance for those experiencing sexual harassment or other forms of sexual violence.

Students who are victims of sexual assault may contact the Victim Services Adjudication Advisor (contact information below) or the UMKC Police.  More information about filing a sexual assault complaint and the University's Student Conduct procedure is outlined in this flow chart.

As part of a violence prevention grant from the U.S. Department of Justice, UMKC is expected to provide all violence prevention education to all new incoming undergraduate students (first year and transfer). Students can complete this requirement by attending a face-to-face session or completing a Blackboard course.

Note: All new incoming undergraduate students will be automatically enrolled in the Blackboard course and will be reminded by e-mail to complete the course. For additional information about the education program, contact:
