MONDAY: TUESDAY:
In Other Ivory Towers Arbor Anecdotes Explained
My professor is hot.
Can I sleep with her (or him)?

THURSDAY: FRIDAY:
Before You Were Here The Extremist

SOLAR FLAIR

You know the feeling. You walk
into class. You find a seat. You look
around.
Then it hits you - you have the
single hottest teacher on campus.
The instructor smiles at you.
Your mind wanders, probably more
than it should.
Would the University be OK with
what you're thinking about doing
with your instructor?
The answer is no.
Sort of.
"The University strongly dis-
courages romantic and/or sexual
relationships between faculty
members and students," according
to the University's Faculty-Student
Relationships policy.
But the policy never explicitly
forbids a student and faculty mem-
ber having a relationship.
Although the University "recog-

nizes" that relationships between
students and faculty can occur, the
policy also states the University's
biggest concern with faculty-stu-
dent relationships - favoritism in
the classroom. ,
Because there is an "inherent
conflict of interest" when instruc-
tors are involved with their stu-
dents, the faculty member must
inform the University of the rela-
tionship.
Any faculty member at the
University who has "supervisory
responsibility" for a student they're
romantically linked to is to notify
his or her administrator.
If a faculty fails to disclose the
relationship to an administra-
tor promptly, the faculty member
could potentially face sanctions
and termination.
The policy, last updated in

2004, was first adopted in 1986.
At that time, the University's Sen-
ate Assembly released a policy
condemning faculty-student rela-
tionships, even when consensual.
Once again, the policy expressed
the University's concern for favor-
itism.
"Sexual relationships, even
when mutually consenting ones,
are a basic violation of professional
ethics and responsibility when the
faculty member has any for the
student's academic performance or
professional future."
The moral of this story? Wait the
three months until you aren't the
student of that particular instruc-
tor anymore.
Or, if you can't keep the secret
for that long, just have your teacher
tell his or her boss.

cil.
* The same article also
referred to one of the co-hosts
of the event, Delta Sigma
Theta, as a fraternity. Delta
Sigma Theta is a sorority.
