St Thomas Faculty Senate Outraged By "No Adultery" Rule

The issue of how much control the University of St. Thomas has over the conduct of employees apparently isn't over in the eyes of University Senate members.

On Tuesday, members of the faculty and administrative governance group passed a resolution that defies the school president, the Rev. Dennis Dease. Last week Dease announced that the school would prohibit unmarried faculty or staff members who are in romantic relationships from rooming together on school trips that involve students.

By a 43-26 vote, the Senate said the policy was a violation of the school's nondiscrimination policy and "cannot be tolerated." StarTribune

Wouldn't it be wonderful to see St Thomas Professors on a picket line chanting "More Adultery Now!
