Conflict of interest

The chair/director and dean play a critical role in managing real and potential conflicts of interest, both to protect the integrity of the university and to protect individual faculty members.

A required element of the university's strategy for reducing the incidence and impact of conflicts of interest and promoting transparency is the completion of annual disclosure forms for conflict of interest (COI) and external professional activities (EPA) by all university members governed by the Framework Agreement. Additionally, an update for research purposes form must be submitted prior to the commencement of any new research project. Forms and details regarding what constitutes a conflict are outlined in:
