The university's commitment to excellence and its position in the community require standards of personal appearance from staff consistent with departmental needs and the expectations of those whom the department serves.

Some university areas in which staff members have limited contact with persons outside the department may be flexible in terms of dress codes. Departments may set reasonable codes for dresses that reflect departmental needs, including the wearing of standardized uniforms provided by the university at no expense to the staff member.
