University of Missouri Rape Education Office
What is the MU Rape Education Office?
The MU Rape Education Office is a comprehensive sexual assault education and resource service, which is an auxiliary of MSA/GPC in collaboration with the MU Women’s Center. Housed within 205 Brady Commons, this resource center is driven by the work of four dedicated student organizations: the Peer Rape Educators, the Greek Advocates, STAR (Stronger Together Against Rape), and MARS (Men Against Rape & Sexual Assault).

- To decrease the prevalence of rape and sexual assault on the MU campus and to serve as a resource for students
