    Faculty and Staff


    Policy

    Employees are expected to dress and maintain personal grooming and attire appropriate for their position and department. The exercise of good judgment in attire and self-presentation is required to meet the business and academic needs of the University. Supervisors set appearance standards for their employees.

    On Fridays, a department head/supervisor may allow business casual attire which excludes clothing such as, but not limited to jeans, shorts, halter tops, flip-flops, sneakers, etc.

    Casual attire such as jeans, shorts, halter tops, sneakers, etc. should not be worn on other days, even during the summer or non-school days.

    Supervisors should communicate the dress code to all employees and enforce the standard consistently throughout the year.
