Mail: Oxford University could ban teacher-student romantic and sexual affairs

Oxford University is considering plans to ban romantic and sexual relationships between teachers and students.
Academics found flouting the policy, which would apply to any staff directly teaching or supervising a student, could face sanctions.
These range from a formal warning to dismissal under new plans, which aim to tackle sexual harassment on campus.
The move to bring in a formal ban comes months after It Happens Here – an Oxford University Student Union group, which campaigns against sexual violence – launched a campaign calling for a ban on the 'inappropriate' relationships.
