Faculty members at Arizona State University voted on Monday to
broaden the institution’s prohibition on dating between professors and
students, reports The Arizona Republic.
The University Senate voted, 76 to 11, to ban professors from dating
students over whom the professors can “reasonably be expected” to have
authority. The current policy forbids relationships between professors
and the students they teach, supervise, or evaluate.
Last fall the faculty body rejected a measure that would have banned
all relationships between professors and students, save exemptions
granted by the provost. The new policy still requires approval from the
administration to take effect.
