504.1 Professional Consultant Service.

Professional consultant service is a proper contribution by a university to the public that supports it. The policy and its related procedures are designed to ensure the quality of such professional activity and provide adequate protection for both the interests of the University and those of the faculty and staff who engage in professional consultation.

504.1.1 Encouraged to Participate. Faculty and staff are encouraged to participate in consulting activities appropriate to their academic or professional areas of competence.

504.1.2 Conflict with University Employment. Consultation must neither be in conflict with, nor detract from, the faculty or staff assignment at the University.

Policy 504 was included in the 2001 University Handbook revision. Amended to separate policies and procedures on October 31, 2011.
