OFFICE OF STUDENT
CONDUCT AND CARE
Dear Purdue Fort Wayne students,
welcome to the fall semester at Purdue Fort Wayne!
For those of you joining PFW for the first time, we are so excited to celebrate you becoming a part of our vibrant, dynamic community. For those of you returning to campus, I want to applaud your resiliency and adaptability during what was another unusual year.
As we begin the next academic year, there are a few key resources and support networks that we would like you to be aware of. We are committed to helping you find your place at PFW, and to creating a community in which each of you can feel a sense of belonging and safety.
The CARE Team
This team is a campus resource for anyone who has concerns regarding student behavior. The team responds to non-emergency concerns and uses a proactive approach to discuss potential problems, intervene early, and develop appropriate courses of action for students who may be in distress and/or whose behavior is of concern to others before they rise to crisis levels. You may submit any concerns at pfw.edu/care.
All students have access to counseling services to help address their individual needs. All currently enrolled Purdue Fort Wayne and Indiana University Fort Wayne students are eligible. The services are free of charge. Students can schedule an appointment by visiting bowencenter.org/scheduleappointment. Additionally, walk-in counseling sessions will be available during the fall semester in Walb Union, Room 111, on Tuesdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Wednesdays from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m., and Thursdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Student Code of Conduct
The code informs the PFW community of the general behavioral expectations that the University has for all students and outlines the procedures that the university uses to respond to complaints when standards are violated. Students are expected to read, understand, and adhere to these regulations. You can review these regulations here.
Alcohol and Drug Information
Every year the university is required by the federal government to advise you of the university’s alcohol and drug policy. Detailed information about university regulations, state and federal laws, health effects, impacts of violations, and campus resources is available here.
Alcohol and Drug Course for All Students
eCHECKUP TO GO is an interactive, confidential survey that allows you to enter information about your drinking patterns and receive personalized feedback about your alcohol use. It enables you to compare your drinking patterns to other college students, gives you accurate information about drinking norms, and discusses individual behaviors and helpful strategies. You can access the survey here.
We look forward to a great year. Welcome back and go, Dons!
