Institutional Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (IEDI) is charged with ensuring Missouri S&T’s compliance with University of Missouri System policies and procedures, state and federal statutes and regulations, especially where it concerns Title IX and other rules governing civil rights and equal opportunity.
The department serves as a resource to students, faculty, and staff in education, prevention, and investigation of incidents of sexual violence, as well as other possible violations of the university’s non-discrimination policies.
In addition to these efforts, IEDI facilitates the development of a more diverse, inclusive campus through its administration of the university’s Affirmative Action Plan and assurance of Equal Opportunity in faculty and staff recruiting efforts. IEDI also works with current faculty and staff in appropriately exercising their rights under both FMLA and ADA.
As stated in its applicable rules and policies, the University of Missouri does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, age, disability or status as a protected veteran. The University affirms its commitment to providing equal opportunities by establishing the Equal Opportunity Policy statement in Section 320.010 of the Collected Rules and Regulations. The University's nondiscrimination policies apply to any phase of its employment process, any phase of its admission or financial aid programs, and other aspects of its educational programs or activities. Additionally, this policy and the existing Title IX policies apply to allegations of sexual misconduct or allegations of other forms of sex discrimination, as defined in Section 600.020C below, occurring within the University’s educational programs and activities and instances occurring in other settings, including off-campus if there are effects of the conduct that interfere with or limit students’ ability to participate in or benefit from the University’s educational programs and activities. Notices of nondiscrimination are posted on the websites and at other locations for the UM System and each of the campuses.
