政策声明

The 欧宝体育平台 is committed to maintaining a safe, 积极的, 和尊重学生的环境, 教师, 管理员, 以及员工研究, 学习, 工作时不要担心潜在的剥削性或强制性的性或浪漫关系可能会损害对欧宝体育平台的教育使命至关重要的联系, 创造真实的或可感知的利益冲突, 或者危害欧宝体育平台社区成员的公平待遇.

政策原因

The purpose of the Policy on Consensual Sexual or Romantic Relationships Between Employees, 受托人, 确保大学的学术和工作环境不存在实际或明显的利益冲突,当个人在大学中处于不平等的权力和权威,涉及双方同意的性或浪漫关系.

这一政策中确定的关系总是涉及拥有不对称权力和权威的个人. 这种不对称有可能损害学术或工作环境的完整性,并产生剥削或胁迫性或浪漫关系的固有风险. 这种关系的存在, 甚至在双方自愿的情况下, 也可能造成偏袒或优待的感觉,损害所提供的监督和评估的完整性,并可能伤害第三方. 这种类型的关系也可能会让人担心当权者违反了职业行为标准, 提高潜在的利益冲突或偏见, and undermine the respectful and productive educational and 监督 affiliations between individuals, 并可能导致实际或感觉上的性骚扰, 歧视, 以及其他对欧宝体育平台社区成员有害的行为.

Consensual Sexual or Romantic Relationships and Evaluative Authority

当双方自愿的性关系或恋爱关系中的个人在大学中处于不平等的权力和权威地位时, 比如教员和学生, 研究生assistant-student, 主管-下属员工, advisor-建议e, 或者教练兼学生运动员, 存在利益冲突的可能性, 偏袒, 和剥削. These relationships may be less voluntary than the person with greater power and authority perceives, or circumstances may change and conduct that was once welcome may become unwelcome. 一段关系最初是双方自愿的,这一事实并不能使拥有更大权力和权威的人免受性骚扰的指控. 进一步, a party's professional or academic reputation may suffer due to perceptions of 偏袒 or exploitation. 此外, 这样的关系可能会限制机会, 或者一种感知, 对于在学术或工作环境中的其他人.
