48.0 II-5.00 - POLICY ON FACULTY EMPLOYMENT OF MEMBERS OF THE SAME FAMILY
 
 
  (Approved by the Board of Regents, April 26, 1990)
 
 
      It is the policy of the University of Maryland System that
  appointment and promotion of faculty be based on the
  qualifications and performance of the person(s) under
  consideration.
 
      In keeping with this policy, members of the same family,
  including husband and wife, are eligible for employment as
  faculty members.  However, a direct supervisory relationship
  shall not exist between the parties in these instances at the
  time of employment or thereafter, nor shall one member of the
  family assume for the other the formal role of advocate or judge
  with respect to conditions of employment, promotion, or tenure.
  Where members of the same family are recommended for employment
  in the same department or unit, the arrangement shall be approved
  in advance and in writing by the President or the President's
  designee.
