Employees receive appointments at the University based on their expertise and competence in their respective professional fields. Outside professional activities may enhance the professional and scholarly competence of the Employee as well as the reputation of the University.


Employees may engage in professional activity with the community outside the University, provided that such activity does not interfere with the Employee's duties or responsibilities to the Employer and does not violate the University's Conflict of Interest Policy. The Employee shall not represent themselves as acting on behalf of the University. However, nothing shall prevent the Employee from stating the nature and place of their employment at the University.
