Any personal relationships that develop between staff and students must be declared to the Head of Department, Head of Section, Executive Dean, Registrar and Secretary or other relevant manager. In the case of a Head of Department, the Executive Dean should be notified.
It is the responsibility of the staff member to declare a personal relationship with a student and failure to do so may result in disciplinary proceedings.
Any bias, or unfair treatment that has resulted in student assessment, recruitment, performance and development review, promotion or other processes due to a personal relationship, will result in disciplinary action against the staff member.
Staff who are uncertain about whether they should declare a personal relationship with a student are invited to seek guidance on a confidential basis from the Employee Relations team in People and Culture.
