5.1.16 Work Attire

Dominican University's business casual environment allows our staff members to work comfortably yet project a professional image for students, guests and other visitors.  Staff members should maintain a neat appearance and attire should reflect a level of modesty appropriate for the workplace so as not to distract from or disrupt the work environment.  

Acceptable attire may vary by department and should be based on the responsibilities of the positions.   Certain days may be designated by a supervisor or the senior vice president for administration as "dress down days"; jeans or other pre-designated attire may be permitted on those days.  In all circumstances, staff members should use good judgment to ensure that the University maintains a healthy balance between "casual" and "professional".
