“Romantic Relationships”

  • UConn’s comprehensive discrimination and harassment policy includes a prohibition on “romantic relationships” where there is a power difference between the parties.
    • “Romantic Relationship” includes dating, sexual and/or any other type of amorous relationship, and includes proposals and invitations for such contact.
  • Specifically, policy provides as follows:
    • Undergraduates: All faculty and staff are prohibited from proposing or entering into a romantic relationship with any undergraduate student.
    • Graduate Students: All faculty and staff are prohibited from proposing or entering into a romantic relationship with a graduate student actually under that individual’s authority. Also, graduate students are prohibited from entering into a romantic relationship with students over whom they currently exercise authority.
    • Employees: All faculty and staff are prohibited from proposing or entering into a romantic relationship with employees whom they supervise.
