What is a Consulting Agreement?

 

 A consulting agreement is a contract between the faculty or staff member and a company. The university is not a party to a consulting agreement. A consultant usually provides advice, not actual work on the project.

University employees have an obligation to insure that their personal activities are in compliance with university employment policies.

Faculty and staff engaging in outside employment or consulting activities must disclose any intellectual property or inventions arising from these activities.
