Suppose A and B are in a consensual relationship and that A has the potential to exercise authority over B.
- Give examples that highlight different levels of authority.
- How can the policy discourage underestimations of the power differential by both A and B?
- How can the policy sensitize both A and B to the fact the power differential may lead to different definitions of what constitutes ethical behavior?
- How may that power differential manifest throughout the full span of a relationship?
- How should A respond if B is the one pursuing a relationship and initiating romantic or sexual interactions?
- What about the argument that says many relationships in the workforce have a power differential so students better get used to dealing with it?
- Different cultures may have different assumptions or standards as to what constitutes a power differential in an academic relationship. How should the policy address this fact?
- Is there a correlation between the intensity of the power differential and the duration of its effect?
