Faculty/Staff Entertaining

When faculty or staff entertain in their homes or in public establishments, the University of Florida expects all applicable laws and local ordinances to be obeyed. Caution should be exercised where alcohol can be misused in relationships of unequal power (for example, between supervisor and employee, faculty member and student, employee and job applicant, and between graduate assistant and student) causing the boundaries which normally exist between the professional role and the personal relationship to become blurred. Any activities which place emphasis on quantity and frequency of consumption of alcoholic beverages should be avoided. In no case should drinking be portrayed as a solution to personal or academic problems or as necessary to social or academic success.
