|Possible Conflict of Commitment Area||Guiding Principle||Factors to Consider When Reviewing Report or Request|
|Activity may interfere with the performance of regular employment||Faculty member must be able to continue normal teaching, research, service, and departmental participation or professional/academic staff member must be able to maintain regular job responsibilities||
|Activity may involve an excessive time commitment||No more than one day per week, on average, for the term of the appointment||Does the proposed activity, when combined with other [reportable] activities exceed the "significant outside commitment" threshold?|
|Activity involves teaching at another school or an online course||Outside commitment shall not compete with services offered by the University||
|Activity involves conducting research through an outside entity||Outside commitment may not interfere with performance||
|Activity involves serving as officer of professional society or editor of professional journal||Benefits of assuming professional leadership responsibilities for institutional reputation and personal career development need to be taken into account in considering relief from normal job responsibilities.||
