Institutional COI Policy

This policy is intended to address real and perceived conflicts of interest resulting from the financial interests of the University as an institution or of its senior leadership. By implementing a plan to manage potential bias in the research or other academic activity caused by the financial interest, the integrity of the activity will be preserved and enhanced.
