Anne Arundel Community College is committed to providing and maintaining a working and learning environment in which every individual is evaluated on the merits of his or her performance without favoritism. Nepotism is favoritism or the appearance of favoritism by a person in an evaluative or supervisory position to a relative or to any person living in the immediate household of the employee. A relative is one connected to another by blood, adoption or marriage.

Anne Arundel Community College prohibits an individual from evaluating, supervising or making any employment decision whatsoever regarding a relative or any person living in the immediate household of the employee. This policy also prohibits any individual from providing academic instruction to or assessing the academic performance of a relative or any person living in the immediate household of the employee.

The board of trustees hereby authorizes the president, or his/her designee, to develop and establish appropriate procedures to implement and enforce this policy.
