A conflict of interest can exist during the execution of routine committee service activities when they involve family members of close professional associates or friends. Normally, recusal from the committee’s decision is the preferred way to manage these conflicts.

Examples of conflicts of interest in committee service work might include but are not limited to:

  1. Serving on employment selection committees when a family member (as defined above), friend or close professional associate from outside the department concerned is applying for the position.
  2. Serving on selection committees or promotion and tenure committees when a person who is or has been involved in a grievance relating to the committee member is applying for promotion or tenure.
  3. Serving on the promotion and tenure committee when a family member is applying for promotion or tenure.
  4. Serving on the graduate committee for a family member of a close professional associate.
