Senate consideration of conflict policy is delayed

STANFORD -- Presentation of a draft policy on conflict of interest and conflict of commitment set for the Faculty Senate on Thursday, March 3, has been postponed.

The Committee on Research, which has spent more than a year developing the draft document, is taking extra time to consider feedback it received following its Feb. 7 open meeting on the subject, according to Assistant Dean of Research Michele Armstrong, who staffs the committee.

The committee also is developing a cover letter for the proposed policy. "The committee wants to explain the issues more fully so that a reader who is new to the document could clearly understand its context," Armstrong said.

Consideration of the conflict policy may be scheduled for the March 31 senate meeting. Plans call for a vote on the policy to be taken at a subsequent senate meeting.
