Ask For Consent - It's Simple

It is important that students living in University Residences understand the concept of consent for a better college experience. Sign on to the University Residences' Consent Campaign.

Please see Purdue's Office of Institutional Equity's definition of Consent:


View the Ask For Consent - It's Simple poster.

Clear communication given by words or actions that shows an active, knowing and voluntary agreement to engage in mutually agreed-upon sexual activity. Consent is given freely and voluntarily. Consent may not be inferred from silence, passivity or when an individual is Incapacitated or otherwise prevented from giving Consent as a result of impairment due to a mental or physical condition or age. No Consent exists when there is a threat of force or physical or psychological violence.

Although Consent may be given initially, it may be withdrawn at any point without regard to activity preceding the withdrawal of Consent.

The voluntary nature of Consent will be subject to heightened scrutiny in circumstances in which a person engages in a sexual relationship with a person over whom he or she has any power or authority within the University.
