Policy Statement


Prior approval of professional consulting and other external professional activities is required. Requests for approval should be directed to the dean or designee.

Professional consulting and other external professional activities, whether paid or unpaid, may be undertaken only when it is assured that all responsibilities associated with the individual's position are fully satisfied and will continue to be met. Ordinarily, these activities shall be undertaken only when their performance gives promise of enhancing professional standing of the individual or contributing to the fulfillment of the mission of the institution.

Each faculty member must provide a report for each semester indicating all outside professional consulting and external professional activities provided. These forms must be signed by the faculty member and responsible administrator.


UMB does not have a policy which specifically addresses consulting or professional services rendered within the System.
