4. Does submitting an “Outside Employment Approval Form” suggest an employee is doing something inappropriate?
Absolutely not. The University recognizes that one mark of an individual’s distinction is the esteem in which he/she is held by those outside the University who may request her/his expertise. University policy encourages outside activities of a professional nature if the activities are consistent with the individual’s responsibilities to the University and in furtherance of the aims of the University. However, all full-time faculty and academic administrators are required to complete this form and disclose any outside employment at least annually.
