Sexual Misconduct Policy

Sunday, May 24, 2020

No person at the University of Arkansas - Pulaski Technical College will, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied benefit of, or be subjected to sex discrimination, sexual harassment or sexual misconduct under any education program or activity. The College Chancellor will appoint a Title IX compliance officer. All college administrative policies and procedures regarding sex discrimination, sexual harassment, and sexual misconduct will be in compliance with Title IX.

Members of the college community, guests and visitors have the right to be free from sexual discrimination, harassment or violence, which means that all members of the campus community are expected to conduct themselves in a manner that does not infringe upon the rights of others.

UA - Pulaski Tech believes in a zero tolerance policy for gender-based misconduct. When an allegation of misconduct is brought to an appropriate administrator’s attention, and a respondent is found to have violated this policy, serious sanctions will be used to reasonably ensure that such actions are never repeated. These procedures have been developed to reaffirm these principles and to provide recourse for those individuals whose rights have been violated. The policy and procedures are intended to define community expectations and establish a mechanism for determining when those expectations have been violated.

Title IX protects the college community from sexual harassment in a school’s education programs and activities. This means that Title IX protects the college community in connection with all academic, educational, extracurricular, athletic, and other programs of the school, whether those programs take place in a school’s facilities, in college transportation, at a class or training program sponsored by the school at another location, or elsewhere.
