College bans affairs between professors and students

Nov. 21, 2001 | WILLIAMSBURG, Va. (AP) —

Affairs between professors and undergraduates have been banned at the College of William and Mary, where a former instructor caused a furor by writing a magazine article about his romance with a student.

The policy adopted Friday bans “consensual amorous relations” between professors and undergraduates and the professors’ graduate students.

Faculty members who violate the rule could face dismissal, but exemptions may be granted “in exceptional circumstances.”


I’m wondering exactly what ‘exceptional circumstances’ would qualify? Could a professor claim he was so horny he thought he might

explode? I’m just searching for a little clarity here.
