The Policy at Webster

To offer an open learning and working environment, we have created a policy on sexual assault, harassment and other sexual offenses. Our Title IX office offers support, training and reporting tools to help members of the Webster University community. We have outlined these resources in our policy and encourage our community to engage with our team openly.
