If at all possible, try to avoid dating a lab-mate or fellow student in your division with whom you will undoubtedly be spending several hours a week.

Although at first blush having your partner by your side day and night may seem appealing, if things don’t work out as planned, remaining productive at school could prove to be a challenge.

Harvard University’s Faculty of Arts and Sciences now formally bans sexual relationships between professors and undergraduate students.

That’s not because they think there’s all kinds of professor-student dating on campus: The professor who led the panel that wrote the policy said she has never heard of it happening, in years of studying and teaching at Harvard.

The rule about professors and undergrads is the only blanket ban.

The new policy doesn’t ban sexual and romantic relationships between all people who teach and all people who are students.

“It sends a message: You don’t sleep with other people’s children — whether they agree to do it or not — because you’re abusing your power,” Dziech said.

The American Association of University Professors stopped short of recommending a ban on relationships, but it sounded a similar warning, saying that professor-student romantic relationships can make voluntary consent by a student suspect because of the power dynamic.

“In their relationships with students, members of the faculty are expected to be aware of their professional responsibilities and to avoid apparent or actual conflict of interest, favoritism, or bias.
