What is conflict of interest?
A conflict of interest is a situation in which a personal interest may compromise or bias an employee’s professional judgment and objectivity when performing research or making decisions on behalf of the university. Every year, employees must complete training and disclosure on this website, either confirming that you do not have any personal interests that require disclosure or declaring any personal interests you do have.
It’s important that we work together to discuss and resolve conflicts of interest and potential conflicts. Oftentimes, when an individual discloses a potential conflict, there are ways we can collaborate to ensure we address the conflict in a way that protects both parties.
