Teacher-student Relationships and Intro

Hey, I'm new here! I found the comm through LJ's Spotlight archives and I'm really glad I did. I'm sure this will prove extremely helpful in the future.

So: I'm wondering about the rules for professor-student relationships at colleges in the US. My professor is 45-ish and his student is 26-ish. Anything that happens or will happen between them is completely consensual (well, except for when she uses her feminine wiles to get him to do things *wink*). I've found a fair bit of stuff on sexual harrasment on the pages for Faculty and Staff on my college's website, and vague references to "Moral Turpitude" and such, but nothing specific.

Can anyone let me know what would happen if they were discovered (would he be fired? she expelled? probation? bad record/resume?) and what they might dread before the discovery? Has anyone had any experience with this, on either side? Personal stories would be awesome, and you can leave anonymous comments or email me if you don't want to put your life up on teh big internets for the world to see.

Thanks in advance for your help!

ETA: Thanks to the replies here and this post I think I have what I need. Thank you!
