Academic Personnel Policy 015, The Faculty Code of Conduct
Enclosed is revised Academic Personnel Policy 015, the Faculty Code of Conduct, which is effective immediately.
Part II, Section A now sets forth ethical principles and unacceptable conduct with regard to faculty members and their students. The revised policy prohibits a faculty member from entering into a romantic or sexual relationship with any student for whom that faculty member currently has or prospectively might have academic responsibility (as defined). The policy also prohibits a faculty member from exercising academic responsibility for any student with whom that faculty member has a romantic or sexual relationship.
The revisions to APM - 015 were approved by the Assembly of the Academic Senate on May 28, 2003, and adopted by The Regents on July 17, 2003. The policy may be found online at: http://www.ucop.edu/academic-personnel/_files/apm/apm-015.pdf.
