The Midwest Political Science Association (MPSA) is committed to upholding the highest standards for respectful, professional norms and behavior and to fostering an inclusive climate. Consequently, harassment and unprofessional behavior at MPSA events is considered to be a serious form of misconduct.
All participants at MPSA meetings or events are expected to abide by the MPSA Anti-Harassment and Professional Conduct Policy in all meeting venues, including ancillary events and official and unofficial social gatherings by:
- Abiding by the norms of professional respect that are necessary to promote the conditions for free academic interchange, and
- Alerting relevant MPSA staff or security personnel if a situation arises where someone might be in imminent danger.
