Numerous universities allow sexual relationships between students and supervising staff

Others prohibit them altogether

Investigations by The College Fix reveal that numerous universities allow sexual relationships between students and staff members, with some universities permitting them even when the staff member is in a supervisory role over the student.

The Fix looked at the policies of five prominent universities: Harvard, Yale, Columbia, Rutgers, and Penn State.

The Fix previously reported on Columbia’s policy in the wake of a $50 million sexual harassment lawsuit against that university by a student who said she had an inappropriate sexual relationship with then-dean of students of the School of General Studies Tom Harford. The student suing the school recently amended her lawsuit to demand $60 million from the university.

Columbia policy does not actually forbid such relationships between students and staff; rather, the school stipulates that such relationships merely “should” be avoided:
