The RESPECT Initiative is focused on powerful women’s leadership at both the local and global level; to critically examine the traditional paradigms of how gender, power, prestige, sexuality, and education intersect at an American university and beyond. The programs serve as an outlet for women to explore their leadership potential, connect with other women, and learn how they can make a difference as college educated individuals. In the second phase of the initiative, men are encouraged to explore the ways they shape the current campus and global contexts, and are invited to explore their identities and concepts of manhood.

Purdue Identities Project (PIP)
Fraternity, Sorority and Cooperative Life is excited to partner with PIP through the Office of the Provost. The Purdue Identities Project (PIP) is a broad inclusion initiative that's meant to create awareness and resources for those with minority identities at Purdue.
