  • MIT Policies and Procedures | 4.5 Outside Professional Activities
    based on evidence However publicly advertised endorsement of commercial products or services is not in general consonant with the independence and objectivity expected of faculty members In the conduct of their outside professional activities faculty members should be careful to avoid identifying the Institute with opinions or conclusions in public or private reports or in other ways See also Sections 12 3 Use of Institute Name and 12 4 Use of Institute Letterhead Faculty members should avoid association with activities of outside firms and at the same time activities within MIT that are competing directly for government or private funds Similarly access of outsiders to facilities staff and students must be controlled by the responsible faculty and staff in order to avoid undue pressure on those facilities or persons or the implication that an outside organization has a special relationship to MIT when it does not This is an especially sensitive issue if the faculty host is employed by the outside organization In such a case another MIT colleague may be asked to assume the host responsibility 4 5 1 Senior and Junior Faculty The involvement of junior members of the Faculty in outside professional activities is important to their professional development Senior faculty can assist junior faculty in developing such activities by offering potential opportunities to them and giving them advice with respect to both technical and ethical issues It is important however that senior faculty not compromise their objectivity in judging their junior faculty in issues of promotion and tenure by virtue of outside professional activities in collaboration with junior faculty members nor should senior faculty allow internal relationships with junior faculty to influence external relationships expectations or assignments Any new involvement or change in outside professional relations of senior and junior faculty should be approved by the department head after joint discussion with both senior and junior faculty concerned 4 5 2 Faculty and Students Part time involvement of students in the outside professional activities of faculty may under certain conditions offer the potential for substantial benefits to the education of the student In each case of such involvement the faculty member should obtain prior approval from the department head after discussion with the department head and student In this context involvement means any substantive activity whether paid or unpaid In considering such arrangements faculty should be guided by the need to avoid conflicts of interest and to avoid infringement upon the student s academic duties and rights Generally if the faculty member has a role in supervising the student s thesis or in supervising the work of the student as a graduate teaching assistant or instructor g such outside involvement should not be undertaken thus avoiding potential conflicts of interest in the evaluation of the student s performance If the faculty member does not have a role in supervising the student s thesis and or the student s work as a teaching assistant or instructor g such involvement may be undertaken If the outside work is
