University Administration Admits COI Fandango is Fiasco
The Academic Health Center/Medical School has dragged feet on a new COI policy for going on three years. This has cost our reputation dearly.
After we had been assured by Dr. Cerra that he could see the light at the end of the tunnel, Central stepped in and requested a policy for the whole university rather than just the AHC/Med School. This ill-informed and ill-considered decision has been a nightmare.

Provost Sullivan also said that given that there are pending COI decisions required in the Academic Health Center, it may be necessary to adopt an interim policy for it in order not to rush the development of permanent policies for the University as a whole. In terms of central approval, the process is under discussion.
