Welcome

to APSA RESPECT

WHO WE ARE

The APSA RESPECT Campaign encourages “professional respect” by and towards all APSA annual meeting attendees and participants at all times.  Respect stands for Respectful, Equitable, Safe, Professional, and Ethical Conduct Towards All. The APSA Sexual Harassment Survey Report and Anti-Harassment Policy (code of conduct) address the importance of facilitating a climate of respect at the annual meeting. 


WHAT WE DO

The APSA RESPECT Campaign encourages professional respect by and towards all APSA annual meeting, TLC, and workshop and event participants and attendees. We also encourage you to model this principle in your home departments and places of employment and elsewhere throughout the political science profession.

Provide Intervention Training

The presence of APSA resources like the meetings Ombuds and the onsite Bystander Intervention training are meant for use by our Membership association to serve members, graduate members and faculty and students.

Our “Submit a Grievance” page is available for an anonymous grievance or complaint regarding a possible violation of professional ethics, or an alleged incident of harassment, or misconduct.

 In our Resources tab we provide various reports and educational materials that educate on inclusion, respect, and ethical conduct in the profession of political science. Share a link to an article or a resource that addresses one of the above core aspects of the APSA RESPECT. Email diversityprograms@apsanet.org. We will share links to the submitted articles and resources on this website.
