The University of Missouri System recently released the results of student climate surveys taken on each of the four UM System campuses. The surveys, which gauge students’ experiences and opinions on sexual misconduct, were conducted in April 2019. Results of Missouri S&T’s student climate survey are available on the S&T Title IX website.
Resources available for S&T students
Missouri S&T reminds the community that resources are available to individuals affected by sexual violence. The Equity and Title IX Office serves as the primary reporting office for all potential Title IX violations and can provide accommodations to individuals who have experienced any form of sexualized violence. Counseling Services provides free and confidential counseling through licensed professionals for individuals who seek a confidential resource. University Police is available at any time of day every day of the week to provide immediate assistance. Calling 911 and using the Rave Guardian Phone App are mechanisms to contact the University Police Department. There are several safety features on the app, including a way for users to text the University Police. Information about how to sign up for Rave Guardian is available on the University Police webpage.
Missouri S&T is committed to fostering a culture of awareness, intervention and inclusion. Community members are encouraged to learn more about Step UP!, a bystander intervention program that uses a five-step decision-making process that helps empower individuals to notice the event, interpret the event as a problem, assume personal responsibility, know how to help and implement the help – Step UP!
