Professor dating student
Or after a four year wait and love now just around the corner, the prof finds out that the student has re-enrolled for another degree program. Making a practice of initiating sexual relationships with former students, however, would also be problematic.It could be understandable that a faculty member “falls in love” with a student once.The revelation is that the VIU administrators are the decision-makers, not the professors and certainly not the students.
Of course, the bureaucratization of love would seem to me to be the ultimate oxymoron.Of course, the VIU statement does not preclude the student from professing love for the prof.If such becomes the case, I guess VIU would expect the professor to tell him or her that you are violating my boundaries and to please stop!And if the pool of nearby eligibles for dating happens to be mainly former students, it is the most “natural” thing in the world to end up dating and possibly mating with a former student.And the VIU administration engages in gross stereotyping when they refer to only the profs initiating.
And I expect that the highly educated and the not so highly educated are also ineligible for falling in love with each other, and so on and so on, no fraternizing with people from the wrong side of the tracks. And, of course, it would be unthinkable, unmentionable, for an administrator to fall in love with a student!
