Sexual and Intimate Partner Violence Task Force.

Provost and Executive Vice Chancellor Garnett Stokes established the University of Missouri’s Sexual and Intimate Partner Violence Task Force. The Task Force was charged with reviewing the results of the 2015 Association of American Universities (AAU) Campus Climate Survey on Sexual Assault and Sexual Misconduct and making recommendations for enhanced interventions, services and prevention efforts. In addition to Provost Stokes, Vice Chancellor for Inclusion, Diversity and Equity Kevin McDonald and Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs Cathy Scroggs are the Executive Sponsors of the Task Force. The Task Force began its work in earnest during Spring 2016 and anticipates making recommendations to the campus community in 2017.

University of Missouri Sexual Assault Response Team


The USART’s mission is to provide leadership in preventing and responding to sexual and relationship violence and stalking through communication, collaboration and the creation and sharing of resources.


We envision a campus where diversity is celebrated and all people are treated with dignity and respect and have full autonomy over their own bodies and sexual expression.
