Middle Georgia State University (MGA) employees, including temporary employees, student workers and interns, should project a professional image while performing their duties comfortably and safely.

Every employee is accountable for presenting a professional image. Employees are expected to dress appropriately, to be neat, to wear clean clothing, and to be careful of their personal hygiene. Not all fashion trends are suitable for the work environment. Clothing should not detract from the professional image of the employee which may occur if clothing is too faded, too tight, form fitting, low-cut, or short.  See-through clothing, cut-offs, tank tops, and other such attire is inappropriate at any time.

Some departments may establish additional guidelines or require and provide uniforms.

All MGA staff should wear a visible form of identification. This can be in the form of an MGA name tag, name included on an MGA uniform, or an MGA Police Badge.

Flagrant violations of commonly accepted standards of cleanliness or dress may be cause for disciplinary action. If you have a question concerning the standard of dress for your area, ask your supervisor.
