Conflict of Interest

Harvard’s senior officials are in special positions of authority to influence the University’s academic mission, strategic vision, administrative priorities, and business decisions. These individuals are expected to consider their responsibilities to the University as their primary professional obligations. This Policy is intended to give guidance to Harvard’s senior officials about areas of conflicts of interest and conflicts of commitment so that conflicts, real or perceived, may be identified early, disclosed, and resolved appropriately.
