New York City, New York (Northland's NewsCenter) -- The City University of New York has proposed a ban of intimates relationships between professors and students with a stricter sexual-harassment policy, according to the New York Post.

The new policy would ban professors from having intimate relationships with students they deal wtih professionally, according to the New York Post.

The current policy only "strongly discourages" the intimate relationships.

Chancellor, Matthew Goldstein, sent out the information in a memo last week, according to the New York Post.

The New York Post says that the push for the new policy came after faculty members at John Jay College discussed possible sexual misconduct situations and requested a change in policy.
