A potential conflict of commitment occurs when a faculty or staff member’s external relationships or activities interferes with (in actuality or in appearance) the employees’ primary professional obligation and commitment to the University. These external activities can compete with the employee’s obligations to the university either in time or effort and may be either paid or unpaid.  Full-time faculty and staff members owe their primary allegiance to Penn State, and their primary commitment of time and intellectual energies should be to Penn State.
