Why is COI important?
COI policies and regulations protect:
- the design, conduct and reporting of research from bias;
- the safety and rights of human subjects;
- the academic rights and scholarly work of graduate students;
- Rice’s 501(c)(3) status by helping ensure that university resources are used for educational rather than business purposes;
- the reputation of Rice and its faculty, students and personnel; and
- the continuation of Rice’s federal funding from sponsored research awards and other sources.
Faculty Conflicts Committee
Policy 218 provides that the Faculty Conflicts Committee (FCC) will be responsible for: (a) affirming or disputing identifications of COIs; and (b) recommending whether COIs can be managed or must be eliminated.
