Universal Technical Institute (UTI) is dedicated to maintaining safe learning and working environments for students, employees and third parties. UTI does not tolerate sexual misconduct, which includes sex discrimination and sexual harassment, or retaliation in its programs and activities. UTI’s policies specifically prohibit dating violence, domestic violence, sexual assault and stalking, consistent with the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) amendments to the Clery Act.
UTI has designated the Director of Program Compliance to coordinate its compliance with Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, which prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex. Questions or comments about sexual misconduct, which includes sex discrimination and sexual harassment, can be directed to: Jaslyn Ramirez, Director of Program Compliance, Title IX Coordinator, 4225 East Windrose Drive, Suite 200, Phoenix, AZ 85032, 800-859-7249, 623-445-0730, or email@example.com or Annalise Manginelli, National Manager – Support Services/Deputy Title IX Coordinator, 4225 East Windrose Drive, Suite 200, Phoenix, AZ 85032, 800-859-7249, 623-445-0813, or firstname.lastname@example.org.

Bystander intervention includes safe and positive options that may be carried out by an individual or individuals to prevent harm or intervene when there is a risk of dating violence, domestic violence, sexual assault or stalking, or other forms
of sexual misconduct. Bystander intervention includes recognizing situations of potential harm, understanding institutional structures and cultural conditions that facilitate violence, overcoming barriers to intervening, identifying safe and
effective intervention options, and taking action to intervene.
Universal Technical Institute (UTI) encourages campus community members to learn how to intervene in ways that are appropriate to the situation and fit each individual’s comfort level. Possessing knowledge and understanding risk factors
and warning signs help provide confidence when encountering a situation that isn’t right. The Sexual Violence Prevention Training course reinforces The Three D’s approach
as it relates to bystander intervention.
Calling attention to the situation, calling someone for help, asking friends or co-workers to join the group, starting a conversation, or texting someone to see if they need help are ways to intervene as a bystander. Doing something is what matters.
Risk reduction includes options designed to decrease perpetration and bystander inaction, and to increase empowerment for victims in order to promote safety and to help individuals and communities address conditions that facilitate violence.
The following are warning signs that you may be in an abusive relationship. If you are experiencing any of the following, you can contact UTI for help in locating appropriate resources.
