This policy applies to all full and part-time faculty, as well as administrators who teach, guest lecturers, and anyone functioning as faculty.
It prohibits dating, romantic, or sexual relationships between faculty and students, with limited exceptions set forth in the policy.
For these reasons, dating, romantic, or sexual relationships between students and faculty members, including relationships that occur when College is not in session or students are on leave, are prohibited. On occasion, a faculty member will have a dating, romantic, or sexual relationship, or a marriage, with an individual who then becomes a student, or an individual with a pre-existing relationship with a student will join the faculty.
It is the obligation of the faculty member to disclose that relationship or marriage to the Dean of the School (or Executive Director of the program) in which the student is enrolled.
Lavaliering is a "pre-engagement" engagement that is a tradition in the Greek life of college campuses.
