6.02.002 - Conflict of Interest
The Board of Trustees expects ethical conduct on the part of its individual members and on the part of all employees of the College. To that end, it is required that Trustees and employees adhere to the following standards of conduct:
Trustees and employees shall, in the conduct of the business of the College, avoid impropriety or the appearance thereof.
Trustees and employees shall not use their position with the College to gain compensation or benefit for themselves, members of their families, friends, and/or business associates.
Where a potential conflict of interest arises from the above stated prohibition, an individual Trustee or employee shall disclose such interest to the Board, to the President, or to the Vice President of Human Resources, as appropriate, and shall not participate in discussions of or attempt to influence the decision on any matter related to the conflict.
Trustees and employees shall not accept any personal gift, reward, or gratuity of more than minimal value from any person, firm or organization currently doing business or seeking to do business with the College.
The Board directs the President to develop procedures for the implementation of this policy.
Nothing contained within this policy is prohibiting employee concerted activity as protected by the
National Labor Relations Act and the Pennsylvania Public Employee Relations Act.
