Proposed change to Policy 4.16 Extra Income Compensation

Calendar Item: 
1536
Docket Number: 
1413
First Name: 
James
Last Name: 
Mattingly
Facts: 

The proposed change resolves a problematic provision and provides a reference to a new, related policy (9.03) on Conflicts of Interest.  The problematic provision established an expectation that faculty engaging in external consulting should limit those activities to the equivalent of one day per week.  We believe that limitation unreasonably constrains the ability of faculty to engage in the scholarly and creative activities they choose, thereby violating their academic freedom.  The Educational Policies Commission voted unanimously, by a vote of 6-0, with none abstaining, to adopt the proposed changes during its meeting on 02 November 2020.

Action: 

Therefore, be it resolved that the University Faculty Senate has approved changes proposed by the Educational Policies Commission to Policy 4.16, pertaining to Extra Income Compensation.

Final Action Taken: 
Change to policy approved
