Subject:  FACULTY ETHICS: CONFLICT OF INTEREST (teaching/client)


While Amberton University encourages its faculty to participate in relevant professional activities outside the University environment as part of professional development, a clear ethical principle of separation of University teaching and outside activities must be maintained.  Under no circumstances will an instructor at Amberton University solicit, encourage, influence or allow a student to participate in or contribute to any business or service influenced by, supported by, or under the auspices of the instructor.  A faculty member is to never accept one of his/her students as a client or to allow a client to become one of his/her students (client is defined as someone who has paid for professional services).
