I will repeat, in case it got lost in the shuffle, that in the end the financial conflicts policy is a matter for a Senate vote, just as in 1997 was our other conflicts of interest policy, Conflicts of Interest and Abuse of Power: Sexual or Romantic Relationships with Students: http://www.uoregon.edu/~uosenate/dirsen/5_10_97_minutes.html
The OUS Board reiterated in 2005 that such policies are a matter for consideration by faculty senates in Oregon universities: http://www.uoregon.edu/~ifs/dir05/09Sep05IFS.html.
Guarding against improper conflicts of any kind, including financial, is central to ensuring the integrity of our teaching and scholarship, which is a core matter of faculty concern in a university. We can be no less attentive to faculty prerogatives and governance on this matter than, for example, Stanford University, whose faculty senate adopted its financial conflicts policy in 2004.
