  2. interfere with performance at Lewis University;

  3. prove detrimental to the interests of Lewis University;

  4. Involve a conflict of interest or the appearance of a conflict of interest; or

Prior to an employee serving as a paid officer, director, or advisor for another organization, Lewis University will determine if the acceptance of such a role is in the best interests of Lewis University. Such determinations are to be made by the unit head or dean and vice president, with appropriate consultation with the Director of Human Resources.

Any issues regarding outside employment should be resolved prior to the acceptance of such employment.
