ARP 3.13 - Conflicts of Interest Arising from Consensual Relationships

Revision History:

2017 Recompilation, formerly Rule 3.20.34

Faculty of NMSU may not place themselves or be placed by others in situations in which they supervise, evaluate, teach or grade the work of members of their families enrolled in courses offered by the university main campus and/or its community college campuses unless the cognizant department head and dean or equivalent approves a plan to manage the conflict. The same regulation applies to individuals with whom the faculty member is in a consensual relationship (See ARP 3.13). Supervisors of faculty need to adopt the same procedure to manage situations in which the faculty they supervise teach members of the supervisors’ family.
