As a member institution of the National Association for College Admissions Counseling (NACAC), the Office of Admissions at Purdue University is committed to the Principles of Good Practice for this professional organization: “ High schools, colleges, universities, and other institutions and organizations, and individuals dedicated to the promotion of formal education believe in the dignity, the worth, and the potentialities of every human being. They cooperate in the development of programs and services in post-secondary counseling, admissions, and financial aid to eliminate bias related to race, creed, gender, sexual orientation, age, political affiliation, national origin, and disabling condition. Believing that institutions of learning are only as strong ultimately as their human resources, they look upon counseling individual students about their educational plans as a fundamental aspect of their responsibilities.” Ethical Standards Important Reminder
