Conflict of Interest Policy


To fulfill the university’s educational mission and uphold standards of academic integrity, faculty members are expected to avoid apparent or actual conflicts of interest, favoritism, or bias. Ideally, instructors shall refrain from teaching any person to whom they are related, including their own children, other close relatives (including but not limited to immediate family members), or romantic partners. Instructors with any conflicts of interest have a duty to report, in a timely fashion, the existence of the conflict to their dean. As part of the disclosure, the instructor shall submit to the dean a strategy or plan that would mitigate the conflicts.
