Policy Statement

Every employee contributes to the university image. While employees have the right to personal preferences in dress and workplace decor, workplace attire and appearance must be neat, clean, and the overall image must be one of professionalism as appropriate for the particular work being performed. Schools and/or departments may determine appropriate workplace attire for their areas.

The university reserves the right to further restrict dress and workplace decor for legitimate reasons relating to safety, hygiene, allergies, or environmental conditions.
