Learn how to protect yourself and make sure you are not in violation of any laws or policies. What constitutes a Conflict of Interest (COI)? When and how should potential COI be addressed? Conflict of Interest (COI) is a legal term that encompasses a wide spectrum of behaviors or actions involving personal gain or financial interest. Under University policy, the term "conflict of interest" denotes situations in which a member of the University community is in a position to gain personal benefit (broadly construed) or financial advantage arising from their University position, either through outside professional activities or through their actions or decisions at the University, including research, administrative, or educational activities. Because University employees are also State employees, the Maryland State Ethics Law governing conflict of interest also applies.

Presenters: Professor Philip DeShong, COI Committee Chair; Felicia Metz, COI Committee Member; Joseph Smith, COI Administrator
When: September 22, 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM, REGISTER
