Conflict of Commitment Policy Also Reviewed

Council past chair Gray Crouse led a discussion on the conflict of commitment policies as currently drawn in the Emory Faculty Handbook. These policies address teaching, research, and service beyond a faculty member’s school at Emory, as well as private consulting and use of university resources. “One of the issues is that as the policy currently reads, if, for example, a faculty member is invited to give a lecture at Emory or another institution, even for no compensation, that faculty member must get prior permission from the dean,” Crouse said. “This policy does not make distinctions between levels of teaching or levels of service.” The discussion concluded with the determination that the Executive Committee would work on a draft revision of the policy and present it in the next Faculty Council meeting.
