Conflicts of Interest

Examples of conflicts of interest include, but are not limited to, the following situations: being a current or former faculty or staff member at the concerned institution, serving as a member on any committee at the concerned institution, current or previous involvement in any for-profit activity with the concerned institution, and having a dependent who is a student at the concerned institution.
