Rutgers University professors are prohibited from having romantic relationships with graduate students in their departments — and all undergraduates — under a sweeping new policy created in response to concerns about sexual harassment on campus, school officials said. Under the new policy :. Couples who are currently in a relationship in violation of the new policy must apply to a university chancellor for an exemption within 30 days, campus officials said.
Married couples — such as a professor in one department and a spouse taking undergraduate classes in another department — will also have to apply for exemptions. Those who violate the policy could, potentially, lose their jobs. But they are trying to protect students on a campus where professors, deans and other officials can hold a lot of power. It is unclear how many Rutgers faculty members and students are already in romantic relationships or how many might apply for an exemption under the new policy.
Some of the students said they had difficulty reporting the alleged harassment because the professors had the power to derail their graduate studies or future careers. A NJ Advance Media investigation found Rutgers was not investigating some sexual misconduct complaints made against professors because of a little-known policy that said the school did not have to look into allegations that were more than two years old.
Rutgers President Robert Barchi dropped the two-year rule within hours of the publication of the investigation on NJ. Rutgers joins several universities around the nation rethinking their guidelines on when and if professors can have relationships with students. Professors had previously been permitted to have relationships with graduate students as long as they were not in their classes or under their supervision.

Fear of legal liability and increasing acknowledgement of academic power structures changed that, leading institutions to adopt a mix of policies regarding these relationships.
Its rationale for doing so, stated in the policy itself, sums up much of the thinking behind blanket bans on undergraduate-faculty dating.
