Behaviors that Are Rare
The survey of community college teachers yielded a large
number of rare behaviors in comparison to the study done with
psychologists. The two groups share some common reports.
Behaviors noted in both studies as rare are: (1) telling a
student that you are attracted to him or her; (2) making
deliberate or repeated sexual comments or engaging in other
behavior of a sexual nature; (3) teaching under the influence of
alcohol; (4) teaching that a certain race is inferior; (5)
accepting for yourself a publisher's monetary rebate or (6)
accepting for your department a publisher's monetary rebate; (7)
accepting a student's offer for wholesale prices, etc.; and (8)
including false or misleading information in a student
A total of twenty-eight behaviors were found rare among
community college respondents. This represents close to half of
the items queried. Other behaviors reported between 1% and 8%,
as sometimes, often or always in this study include: (1)
ignoring cheating (2) giving easy courses to ensure popularity
with students (3) dating a student (4) accepting an expensive
gift from a student (5) becoming sexually involved with a
