Conflicts of interest occur when university members are in a position or in situations in which financial or other personal considerations may compromise or have the appearance of compromising an employee’s professional judgment in administration, management, teaching, research and other professional activities. Conflicts of commitment arise when university members’ involvements in outside activities substantially interfere with their primary commitments to the university: to teach, to conduct research and to meet related obligations to students, colleagues and the university.
