Revision of Appendix U: Statement on Professional Ethics
RESOLVED: That the University Senate of Humboldt State University recommends the attached revisions to Appendix U, “Statement of Professional Responsibility” (HSU Faculty Handbook) be forwarded to the General Faculty for ratification or rejection; and be it further
RESOLVED: That these revisions shall become effective immediately upon approval of the General Faculty.
RATIONALE: A statement on sexual relations between faculty and students was approved by the Academic Senate Resolution #13-91/92-FA (passed on 12/11/91) but was dropped from Appendix U when it was revised the following year. Similar language already appears in the Humboldt State University Policy Against Sexual Harassment and Sexual Assault, adopted January 2005. The proposed language would restore a slightly revised version of that policy to Appendix U.
University Senate: Passed Unanimously, 11/27/12
General Faculty: Approved, Spring 2013 (Feb. 18-22) General Faculty Election
