July 1, 2014
The University has issued revisions to Academic Personnel Manual (APM) policies, APM 025, Conflict of Commitment and Outside Activities of Faculty Members, APM 670, Health Sciences Compensation Plan, and new APM 671, Conflict of Commitment and Outside Activities of Health Sciences Compensation Plan (HSCP) Participants. The revised APM 025 and 670 are effective July 1, 2014.
The campus will develop local procedures to implement new APM 671, and the new APM 671 will be implemented at UC San Diego no later than July 1, 2015. Until new APM 671 is fully implemented, HSCP participants remain subject to APM 025 and current APM 670, Appendix B, Guidelines on Outside Professional Activities for HSCP. The latter will be retired, effective June 30, 2015.
The general intent of APM 025 and APM 671 is to ensure that when a faculty member participates in activities outside of the University the activities do not interfere with fulfilling the individual’s responsibilities to the University. To enhance clarity and to foster consistent interpretation, revisions to current APM 025 and the creation of APM 671 result in mutually exclusive policies such that HSCP faculty are subject to APM 671, and all other faculty (including Health Sciences faculty who are not HSCP participants) are subject to APM 025.
The revised policies are available on the following website:
