- How might the following situation be managed. PhD student X and undergraduate Y are romantically involved at another university. X becomes a faculty member at Cornell and Y becomes a PhD student in the same Cornell department.
- How might the following situation be managed. Faculty member X and PhD student Y, both new to Cornell and in very different fields , become romantically involved. Over time, Y’s research area has increasing overlap with X’s research area to the extent that a close colleague of X is now a member of Y’s Special Committee.
- If you do actually think that both of the above situations are manageable, then what makes pre-existing relationships (as in 1 or 2) different from comparable relationships that do not involve physically moving to Cornell or academically moving into a new research area or professionally moving into a new position of employment?
