Conflict of Interest and Conflict of Commitment

Last modified: May 15, 2015

The University of Michigan and the School of Education allow and encourage faculty to engage in outside activities and relationships that enhance the University’s mission. However, where faculty are engaged with actors and institutions outside the University, potential conflicts of interest and commitment are inevitable. Such conflicts are not necessarily problematic, but it is important that faculty disclose any potential conflicts of interest or commitment as soon as they arise so that they can be evaluated and, if necessary, managed or eliminated.
