(Campus Reform) The University of Connecticut (UConn) is set to implement a new policy this fall which would ban consensual sexual relationships between staff members and students.

The Hartford Courant reported last week that the new rules would specifically prohibit consensual sexual relationships between faculty or staff and undergraduate students, and between graduate students and any faculty or staff member with authority over them.

UConn is set to pass a new rule prohibiting sexual relationships between faculty and students.

The changes are part of the school’s response to allegations that music professor Robert Miller, 66, engaged in sexual conduct with multiple students over decades, going so far as visiting UConn students’ freshman dorms and providing students with drugs.
