STATEMENT OF POLICY
Purdue University is dedicated to keeping a host by which learning, discovery and engagement occur in an atmosphere that is professional of respect and trust.
The disparity of energy whenever A amorous relationship is between (1) students and a faculty member, graduate training or research associate, or other University worker that has academic duty on the pupil, (2) a manager and subordinate, or (3) senior and junior peers in the same division or product makes the people included prone to exploitation. Amorous Relationships that happen within the context of academic or Employment Supervision and Evaluation like those known as above undermine professionalism and hinder the satisfaction for the University’s mission that is educational. Relationships between faculty and pupils are especially prone to exploitation. The respect and trust accorded a part associated with the faculty by way of a pupil, plus the energy exercised by faculty in offering grades, approvals or strategies for future research and work, make consent that is voluntary the pupil suspect.
People who abuse their energy into the context of a Amorous Relationship where there is certainly Educational or Employment Supervision and Evaluation violate their responsibility to your University community. Voluntary permission because of the pupil or subordinate in an intimate or intimate relationship is hard to figure out offered the asymmetric nature for the energy framework within the relationship. The individual with power may perceive the existence of consent that may not exist or not exist at the level perceived by the individual with power because of the complex and subtle effects of the power differential in the relationship. The chance exists that, in the event that relationship sours, him or her might be at the mercy of a claim of intimate harassment.
