7. When does outside employment, a second teaching activity, or other outside enterprise conflict with an employee’s contractual or professional responsibilities to the University?

If a question or reservation about the effect of outside employment, a second teaching activity, or other outside enterprise upon an employee’s contractual or professional responsibilities to the University arises, the employee and the responsible administrator shall inform and consult with each other about the proposed outside employment, teaching activity or enterprise. Academic units are encouraged to include information about the “Outside Employment Approval Form” and unit- and discipline-specific information about what types of outside employment and/or other activities might be appropriate in their handbooks. If guidance is not available in the handbook, faculty members and academic administrators should consult with their responsible administrator about the appropriateness of any outside employment, second teaching activity or outside enterprise. Through this consultative process the employee and the responsible administrator should be able determine the appropriateness of the employment or activity.
