Message to the Public


The University of Arizona encourages University faculty, staff, and students to engage in appropriate relationships with private industry and the nonprofit sector as part of its mission to disseminate knowledge through teaching, research, and public service. At times, however, these external activities may have the potential for a financial conflict of interest when the activities, income, or other interest affect, or appear to affect, the activities pursued within the University.

The Conflict of Interest Program (COIP) supports and promotes The University of Arizona's ethical conduct of research. In collaboration with the Institutional Review Committee and the Executive Review Committee, the Conflict of Interest Program works with The University of Arizona’s research community who are engaged in external relationships to ensure that all identified financial conflicts of interest or institutional conflicts of interest are appropriately managed, reduced, or eliminated.
