Conflict of Interest

Given that the University of Michigan allows and encourages outside activities and relationships that enhance the mission of the University, potential conflicts of interest and commitment are inevitable. As a public institution, laws regulate the ethical conduct of our employees, including the management of conflicts. It is critical that we disclose and manage all potential conflicts transparently and with the highest standards of integrity.
