  • The College has adopted the following policy which formally prohibits amorous relationships between supervisors and their subordinates:

    Amorous Relationships between Supervisors and Subordinates: As an educational institution, Rollins College strives to maintain for its employees an environment of safety, trust and mutual respect. As part of its ongoing efforts to maintain a safe working environment, Rollins prohibits and will not tolerate discrimination, harassment or any mistreatment of employees. While Rollins recognizes that "consensual" amorous or romantic relationships between employees do not constitute sexual harassment, it also recognizes that such relationships may end unhappily or become conflicted and result in charges of sexual harassment, or even physical or psychological abuse. In such cases, the College has a legal duty to respond to and investigate these charges in the same manner as charges arising in any other context. Further, some courts reviewing such claims have held that supervisor and employee relationships are inherently unequal because supervisors have authority or control over employees. Thus, in relationships that are inherently unequal, the existence of consent may not insulate an individual or the College from liability if charges of sexual harassment are filed.

    Accordingly, all staff members are expressly prohibited from engaging in amorous relationships with employees under their supervision or advisement. Staff members who violate this policy will be subject to the disciplinary procedures of the institution including possible termination.

    Additionally, all staff members are expressly prohibited from engaging in nonprofessional relationships with students, including but not limited to amorous relationships with any students.

In support of the College’s mission, The Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life provides
meaningful opportunities for personal growth in the areas of values-based leadership and decision making, professional development, academic achievement, and social excellence, empowers members to create positive change and to maximize their potential through advising with a developmental approach, and educates with the purpose to create exemplary fraternity men and sorority women.
