Respect Boundaries

Sexual Violence Awareness Program

Purdue Northwest is committed to maintaining a positive and safe environment free from all forms of harassment, including sexual harassment.

In addition, the University complies with several federal laws, including the Campus Sexual Violence Elimination (SaVE) Act. SaVE requires students to receive primary prevention and education awareness about sexual violence. PNW provides Respect Boundaries online training to new incoming and transfer students via our Learning Management System, BrightSpace.

Respect Boundaries consists of four modules:

  • Purdue University Policies and Procedures
  • Risk Reduction and Prevention
  • Relationship Violence
  • Supporting Survivors: Resources and Services
