320.093 Spouses and Relatives as Students


To avoid any potential conflict of interest, faculty are encouraged to avoid instances where their students are family members by directing those students to equivalent courses taught by colleagues. Faculty are to inform their Chairperson/Dean when conflict exists. In those cases where coursework is not available from any other professor, faculty are encouraged to follow the following guidelines in order to ensure objectivity in teaching and grading:

Another faculty member should be responsible for grading class written products when possible; class assignments should be consistent for all students in the class; student tests should be graded by another member of the faculty when possible; faculty member should not be the student advisor nor a member nor chair of the program of studies, thesis or dissertation committee.
