Dating a student

Medicine was just a distant thought in his mind and he already had a career… A few years after we met and started dating is when he began medical school and now he’s getting ready to start his third year [of school] soon. We have been through a LOT together and I know we are going to go through a lot more.

I didn’t originally sign up for this, but when you love someone you will do anything and everything for them…

While I was reading it, all I kept thinking was, “This is SO true! I have to say #7 and #9 don’t really apply to me, but it may to most others…

and I changed Chinese food in #8 to Pho because we would rather have Pho over Chinese any day!

I love sharing tasty recipes, travel destinations, restaurant eats, and my attempt at DIY projects. A revision of harassment policies, however, involves “the totality of Duke” including its health system and involves “the university as an employer going first,” Taylor said.Appendix Z, the dating policy, now says faculty and students shouldn’t have a consensual relationship when the student is under the faculty member’s authority.“A more realistic timetable might be something that we brought back to the council during the fall semester.” One problem the committee has to address is that the existing policy’s definition of faculty includes teaching assistants – graduate students who may themselves be only a few weeks or a couple of months on from having finished their undergraduate degrees.The simplest of all possible changes would thus bar graduate teaching assistants from dating undergraduates, just as it would bar professors from dating them.It’s likely a group of inner-circle faculty leaders at Duke University will push their colleagues to forbid any consensual dating or sexual relationships between professors and the university’s undergraduates.Members of the Academic Council’s executive committee “believe it’s time” to change a policy that presently allows such relationships if the student involved isn’t taking classes from, working on research projects with or being mentored by the professor involved, said Don Taylor, the council’s chairman.Also, it doesn’t appear that a parallel move to completely bar professors from dating graduate students is in the cards, at least for now.That issue “is more complicated” and merits comparisons of Duke’s policy to those of other universities, with an emphasis on making sure there’s “clarity and sunlight or sunshine on the situation,” he said.Taylor said the existing policy has “so many hoops and steps and hoops and steps” that “it would be the best thing to say this is not an appropriate thing for faculty members to be engaged” in.It also would underscore that “we as faculty have this incredibly privileged role in trying to seek truth and new knowledge and invite students along in doing that as well,” he told the council at its most recent meeting.
