A university in Pakistan forbids romantic ties between employees and students

In educational institutions, intimate connections between staff members and students are often discouraged due to concerns about exploitation and conflicts of interest. These relationships could give the impression of partiality and interrupt the learning process.

Khyber Medical University has outlawed personal ties between teachers and students in order to prevent controversies and harassment.

The Higher Education Commission (HEC) imposed strict guidelines to address harassment on campuses, which prompted this action. The KMU harassment investigation committee chairman issued a notice in which she threatened severe consequences such as termination, suspension, expulsion, disciplinary probation, fines, withholding of a degree, revocation of a professional license, filing of the decision in a personal file, and other relevant penalties.

It claimed that these kinds of close relationships put the university’s reputation at jeopardy, create conflicts of interest, and impair professional judgment.

Recently, one Grade-18 staff member was expelled for breaking regulations, and another Grade-17 staff member received written reprimands, penalties, and a demotion. In addition, a number of other top employees were given final warnings and are still being watched.
