Conflict Review Committee

The Conflict Review Committee (CRC) advises the Vice Chancellor for Research on matters regarding conflict of interest or conflict of commitment. University policy requires that the committee be composed of at least three academic staff members. UIC’s CRC is made up of 12 faculty and academic staff, each serving a 3-year term. The current CRC chair is Dr. Janet Lin, Professor, Department Emergency Medicine, College of Medicine.

CRC members reflect UIC’s diverse disciplines, colleges, interests, and experiences. Typically, the committee meets once every six weeks throughout the year and sets its meeting dates one semester at a time. The CRC evaluates all formal conflict management plans before they go to the Vice Chancellor for final approval and non-compliance. Materials to be reviewed by the CRC are due two weeks in advance. Due dates are listed on the meeting schedule.
