Outside Employment and Other Outside Activities

Faculty members are encouraged to work in their fields outside the University to maintain professional knowledge and acumen that may be valued in the classroom.  Faculty members may engage in professional activities outside the University provided the activities do not interfere with the Faculty member's teaching, research, or service responsibilities to the Department, Campus, College or University or conflict with the Faculty member’s professional responsibility to the University as the prime employer (See, University Policy Register 3342-6-24). These activities must not compete with University activity or the faculty member’s employment with the University and must be approved in advance by the Dean and the Provost.  Each academic year, each full-time faculty member must disclose and seek approval for all outside employment or other outside activities on the form provided by the University.  Any outside employment or other outside activities are subject to the Faculty Code of Ethics and the University’s conflict of interest policies (See, University Policy Register 3342-6-17 and 3342-6-23).
