The University Policy on Conflict of Commitment and Interest states that participation by academic staff members in external activities that enhance their professional skills or constitute public service can be beneficial to the university as well as to the individual. Because external activities can lead to conflicts of commitment or interest with regard to one's university responsibilities, the non-university activities must be measured and monitored. The COI resources on the left hand menu will help you to disclose and manage conflicts arising from your non-University activities.
