9500 Support Staff Dress and Grooming

Policy Type: 
Support Staff

The Board of Trustees believes that support staff members are an important and integral part of the College. And, since the support staff is a highly-visible staff to the students, the professional staff and the public, the Board believes the support staff should at all times be well dressed and groomed. A support staff member who understands this precept and adheres to it enlarges the importance of their task, presents an image of dignity and encourages respect.

The Board retains the authority to specify the following dress and grooming guidelines for support staff. All support staff members shall, when assigned to College duty:

  1. be physically clean, neat, and well groomed;

  2. dress in a manner consistent with their support responsibilities;

  3. dress in a manner that communicates to others a pride in personal appearance;

  4. dress in a manner that does not cause damage to College property;

  5. be groomed in such a way that their dress or hair style does not disrupt the educational process or cause a health or safety hazard.
