Tulane University's mission is to create, communicate, and conserve knowledge in order to enrich the capacity of individuals, organizations, and communities to think, to learn, and to act and lead with integrity and wisdom. Accordingly, the University recognizes that its Faculty and Staff enjoy productive and responsible collaboration and synergies achieved through thoughtful partnerships that benefit the participant and the University, its students, patients, and the public at large. The University, Faculty, and Staff have a shared interest in assuring the institutional integrity of the University as well as the personal and professional integrity of the Faculty and Staff. The University is committed to maintaining the highest standards of excellence in teaching, research, patient care, and welfare.
In order to maintain such standards, the University is committed to identifying and addressing potential, actual, or perceived Conflicts of Interest and Conflicts of Commitment to ensure that the University, Faculty, Staff, and Investigators conduct research and other academic and administrative activities in a fair and unbiased manner. An integral part of that process is to gather information from Faculty, Staff, and Investigators related to potential Conflicts of Interest and Conflicts of Commitment.
Please take the time to carefully consider this information and thoughtfully complete the following COI Disclosure Form so that the University can comply with federal law and can continue to uphold the highest standards of integrity.
