XIII. Conflicts of Interest
Faculty members are expected to avoid outside employment if it interferes with their teaching effectiveness and performance of their faculty responsibilities. The primary obligation of full-time faculty members and other employees is to the College. No other form of gainful employment should interfere with this commitment.
Persons with full-time teaching appointments who are asked to teach part-time for other institutions, or who wish to engage in consulting or other kinds of paid work, must gain prior written permission from the President or designee on the occasion of first undertaking such work.
Faculty members should be aware that provisions of the “State and Local Government Conflict of Interests Act” (VA. Code 2.2-3100 et seq.) may apply to their outside employment or consulting contracts.
