PTI has a zero tolerance policy for gender and sex-based discrimination, and seeks to create and maintain a campus free from sexual misconduct.

Perry Technical Institute faculty and staff are mandatory reporters. Once an employee becomes aware of an incident, they have an obligation to share it with the Title IX Coordinator. If, however, a student or employee desires that details of the incident be kept confidential, they should speak with one of several off campus resources.
While absolute confidentiality cannot be guaranteed throughout the investigation, the school makes every effort to only inform others on a need-to-know basis.

Depending on the nature of the incident report, the complexity of the issues and events, number and availability of witnesses, the amount of information to be gathered and reviewed and other factors, PTI will attempt to complete the investigation as soon as practical, and a determination regarding the reported harassment will be made and communicated to the complainant and to the accused harasser.
If a complaint of prohibited harassment is substantiated, appropriate corrective action, up to and including dismissal, will be taken. Appropriate action will also be taken to correct the effects of the harassment and to deter any future harassment.
