Employees must, at all times, be neat and polished in both their personal and uniform or civilian dress, consistent with their role as educators, service providers, and university representatives.

Clothing is to be neat and clean, and personal grooming will be consistent in cleanliness and appearance. Revealing or suggestive clothing is inappropriate for the workplace. Additional requirements may be dependent on the department and the position of the employee. Managerial staff shall ensure compliance with this policy. 

Any employee who does not comply with this policy may be subject to disciplinary action.
