It is essential that university employees present a professional image to students, alumni, and the public. As part of that image, it is imperative that all employees dress appropriately. Decisions regarding appropriateness of professional dress are made at the discretion of individual academic and administrative officers. These officers have the responsibility for communicating these decisions to supervisors. Supervisors should convey these guidelines to their employees and regularly disseminate information, as necessary, related to department dress standards.
