Professor-student sex banned at Harvard

So long Mrs. Robinson. Harvard has banned sexual relationships between undergraduate students and professors. Sure…that’ll stop ’em!

Finally the light goes on in wackademia that 60+ year old professors should not see work as a place to troll for “jail bait.”

The question is, “What’s the penalty?”

According to News Sky, History professor Alison Johnson, who led Faculty of Arts and Sciences Committee on Sexual Misconduct Policy and Procedures, said her group spent last summer and autumn consulting with students, faculty members and staff to get feedback.

“As part of this process, we thought a lot about the way that power dynamics can contribute to sexual harassment,” Professor Johnson said.
