UC Conflict of Interest Awareness

Be aware of potential conflicts of interest

The University of California recently developed an awareness campaign in an effort to communicate the importance of understanding issues surrounding Conflict of Interest. Faculty members, postdocs, visiting scholars, graduate students and staff need to be informed about what may constitute a real or perceived conflict of interest as they conduct their work for UC. 

Each campus has designated resources to help you better understand the issues related to your specific situation. Whether you are publishing, speaking, consulting or part of a start-up company, we encourage you to contact your representative for more information. Please see below to view the Conflict of Interest campaign posters as well as your local campus resources.
