A statement from the University of Central Missouri:

The University of Central Missouri is committed to providing a safe and secure learning environment, both on campus and with regard to other types of off-campus learning opportunities, including academic internships.

UCM does not respond to questions about campus investigations. Federal law protects the privacy of our students, and requires colleges and universities to have policies and procedures in place to protect our campus learning environment for all students, employees and guests. As such, the university cannot comment on an individual student’s academic program of study, or with regard to any situation which could potentially affect a student’s confidentiality regarding his/her academic studies.

The university strongly supports the provisions of Title IX and what it means for the safety and security of campus members and guests. UCM will not respond to questions about specific students and employees, but will be glad to share information about our Title IX Policy/Procedures.

The university has a long and successful history of providing internship opportunities for our students in Jefferson City, and we expect these programs will continue.
