Dating a graduate student as undergrad Sex chat online in dubai
I have been to universities where the answer has been "Absolutely not under no circumstances", and some where the answer has been "As long as you're not in a supervisory position". " In my mind, the biggest issue here is the potential power imbalance between the faculty member and the student, and the ability of the faculty member to influence her career and degree progress positively or negatively.
That comes up in the same department or in a direct supervisory role, but it could also crop up if you're in the same school.
Visit Stack Exchange I am a 32 year old Assistant Professor. I liked her, but I realized she is a graduate student at the same university where I am faculty member. (My husband was a graduate student at the university I'm a professor at, in a different department in the same school, when we started dating.) The core ethical issue in faculty/student relationships is the power dynamic: it creates an ethical problem if you have power over her career, either in a way that could favor her (leading to concerns about favoritism) or disfavor her (leading to concerns about coercion).
She is from the same school, but from a different department. In separate departments, that's not likely to be an issue: most assistant professors at most universities don't have power over graduate students in other departments.
I just ran across a publication from a very respected professor, at a very respected institution, who collaborates with his wife, also a professor at the same institution, and a co-author on the paper.
Professor X hires a new student D, who previously dated her student E, but is now dating F in the lab next door.
How will this impact D and E’s ability to deliver on their professional responsibilities to their professor and to the federal agencies (and taxpayers) that are supporting their graduate studies?
His bio indicates he met his wife while on a fellowship.
I generally agree with other posters that separate departments should be distant enough--except that you met at an academic conference, which suggests your areas of study overlap in some way.
