In accordance with Federal regulations, Middlebury has a responsibility to manage, reduce, or eliminate any actual or potential conflicts of interest that may be presented by a financial interest of an investigator. Thus, Middlebury policy requires that investigators disclose any significant financial interest that may reasonably appear to be affected by sponsored projects. Middlebury also requires disclosure of any family relationship between investigators and persons working with them on sponsored projects.
These guidelines define general Middlebury policy and procedures regarding conflicts of interest in relationship to sponsored projects involving research, education, and Middlebury service. Their purpose is to protect the credibility and integrity of Middlebury's faculty and staff so that public trust and confidence in Middlebury's sponsored activities are ensured.
