Policy Statement

Each employee should be aware of the policy with respect to non-University employment during the term of one’s professional obligation to the University.

Article XI (Appointment of Employees), Title H (Appointment Year) of the Policies of the Board of Trustees of the State University of New York provides specifically with respect to non-University employment that “No employee may engage in other employment which interferes with the performance of the employee’s professional obligation.” Conflicts of interest as well as time are implied in this prohibition.

The President of the University makes the determination of the professional obligation of the academic and other professional employees of the University.

In no case may a full-time professional employee of the University hold another full-time position of employment. No faculty member may be given or retain continuing appointment at the University if that faculty member holds tenure at another institution unless a special, written exception is granted by the President of the University.
