Faculty Handbook: Academic Responsibilities of Faculty
Prior approval by department head and/or dean is required in order for any full-time faculty and non-classified administrative staff member to engage in outside employment. Such employment for compensation is authorized by Board of Trustees policy 450.1 provided this employment does not interfere with the employee’s duties (such as by creating a conflict of interest or commitment) and provided that the employee receives written approval from his or her department head and/or dean in advance of the employment. Similarly, employees planning to engage in outside employment must disclose by means of the appropriate form any relationships or activities which might give rise to conflicts, or the appearance thereof, with their duties, responsibilities or obligations to the University of Arkansas. See Board of Trustees policy 450.1 for details.
