Dress Code

Scope: Office Staff

Standard Office Attire:

Office staff employees are expected to dress appropriately every day for departmental activities and also for interaction with current students, alumni and guests. Area vice presidents are authorized to require specific professional attire for individual departments and offices.

Dress Down Fridays:

Office staff employees are permitted to wear casual attire (including clean, not torn jeans or other casual pants) that is appropriate for the work place. Departments may require standard office attire on Fridays if they deal extensively with the public, and departments with professional activities on specific Fridays may require standard office attire.

Mega Dress Down:

Throughout the academic year office staff employees may be permitted to wear casual attire on days other than Fridays. These days are typically during academic breaks (fall, semester, and spring breaks) and announced by the Human Resources Office. Departments with extensive public contact and departments with professional activities on a Mega Dress Down day may require standard office attire.

It is generally not appropriate to wear clothing promoting other colleges and universities to work and preferable to wear Albion College gear. Flip-flops, sweat pants, shorts, warm-up pants and baseball caps are not allowed. (Coaches are not covered by this policy.)
