Title IX


Statement of Policy

It is the policy of PCOM to comply with Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, which prohibits discrimination (including sexual harassment and sexual violence) based on sex in the College’s educational programs and activities. Title IX also prohibits retaliation for asserting or otherwise participating in claims of sex discrimination. PCOM has designated a Title IX Coordinator and Deputy Title IX Coordinators to coordinate PCOM’s compliance with and response to inquiries concerning Title IX. In addition to the grievance procedures outlined in the Sexual Misconduct (Title IX) Policy, a person may also file a complaint with the Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights regarding an alleged violation of Title IX by visiting the Office of Civil Rights complaint forms page on the U.S. Department of Education website or calling 1-800-421-3481.

Title IX Coordinator and Role

To ensure compliance with Title IX, the President of the College has designated a Title IX Coordinator who will:

  • Serve as a resource for students wishing to report any acts of sexual misconduct or gender-based discrimination, i.e. violations of Title IX.
  • Provide oversight for all Title IX complaints and identify patterns, issues or problems regarding those same complaints.
  • Review and support the informational initiatives enabling students, staff and faculty to fully understand sexual violence and sexual harassment as forms of sexual discrimination and further educate the community about College policy and procedures.

The College does not discriminate on the basis of sex in the operation of its education programs and activities, pursuant to its obligations to comply with Title IX and other applicable laws and regulations. If you believe you have experienced sexual misconduct or sexual harassment, you have the right to file a complaint with the College, the local police, or both.
