About the MU Equity Office

The MU Equity Office works with MU faculty, staff, and students who believe they may have been subjected to unfair or inequitable treatment for any reason.

Our office seeks to address bias, including but not limited to discrimination on the basis of considerations prohibited by law or official university policy. We assist individuals who believe they may have been harassed or treated differently from others in the same situation. More about MU Equity Office staff and services.
