6.3.7 Conflict of Interest

If the performance of any duty or responsibility hereunder by University employees presents any actual or apparent conflict of interest or violation of the University’s Code of Ethics and Conduct, as determined by the General Counsel, the General Counsel may recommend to the President reassignment of duties and/or responsibilities of such employees on a case-by-case basis to avoid such conflict or violation.  Any person who believes they cannot be impartial, or viewed as impartial, due to a conflict of interest has an obligation to inform others of such conflict and to remove or recuse him or herself from the investigative or administrative hearing process.  Questions regarding the existence of a conflict of interest should be directed to the General Counsel’s Office.
