III.A.5. Conflict of Interests
A conflict of interests occurs when a university officer or employee, or a member of his or her immediate family has a personal interest, or benefits or suffers from his or her participation in a contract or transaction considered by JMU. A potential conflict of interests occurs when there is a divergence between an individual's private interests and his or her professional obligations to the university such that an independent observer might reasonably question whether the individual's professional actions or decisions are determined by considerations of personal gain, financial or otherwise. A faculty member shall be sensitive to the potential for such conflicts, and shall avoid a conflict of interests. For details, see Manual of Policies and Procedures, Policy 1106, Conflict of Interests and the State and Local Government Conflict of Interests Act, Code of Virginia, Section 2.1 – 3100 et seq.
