USHE – Adoption of Policy R842, Restrictions on Faculty/Staff Relations with Students
Geoff Landward provided an explanation of the policy, and noted legislation passed during the last session requires the policy be adopted by May 15, 2019. Regent Barnes asked if in section 4.3 it should read shall instead of may. Geoff explained it should read may as institutions can use this policy or create their own. There was some discussion on how the intuitions will notify their campuses. It was stated the entire campus community would be notified at each institution. Regent Barnes made a motion to approve as outlined; the motion was seconded by Regent Jibson and the motion passed.

Regent Stoddard made a motion to move into closed session to discuss personnel matters; the motion was seconded by Regent Barnes and the motion carried.

The meeting adjourned at 1:02 p.m.

Date Approved: May 17, 2019
