Sexual Relationships and the Classroom Environment

The University strongly discourages sexual relationships between a teacher and student or between a supervisor and staff member because such relationships tend to create compromising conflicts of interest or the appearance of such conflicts.

As used in this section, the term teacher includes a faculty member, graduate student, administrator, coach, advisor, residence staff or program director having supervisory responsibilities for students.

Sexual exploitation or sexual harassment of any kind as described in University policy is a violation and will be subject to severe sanctions up to and including termination or dismissal. Please read the complete University of Denver Equal Opportunity/ Sexual Harassment Policy for more information on consensual sexual relationships and sexual harassment.
