Conflict of Interest

Conflict of interest occurs in any situation in which a person serves or represents two distinct entities (or persons) or must choose between two conflicting interests. Of most concern are those situations in which regard for a private interest may lead to a disregard of the faculty or staff member's duties toward the university and its mission. Whenever a question, or appearance of conflict, could arise, the employee is expected to report the situation to his supervisor for discussion and, if required take further action as described below.
