Harvard Professors Are Barred From Having Sex With Undergraduates

The Chronicle of Higher Education
February 5th, 2015



Harvard University has banned “sexual or romantic relationships” between professors and undergraduate students, Bloomberg News reports. The university’s previous policy only discouraged relationships between professors and the students they teach.
With the move Harvard joins a growing number of institutions to ban relationships outright. But many stop short of that step. Last week Arizona State University broadened its ban on professors’ dating students they oversee to include any students they can “reasonably be expected” to oversee. The American Association of University Professors does not recommend a ban on relationships between students and faculty members.
