PLEASE NOTE:  On this recording, you will hear a number of questions regarding outside activities performed during vacation hours and whether those activities are required to be reported.  This differs depending on whether you are covered by APM 025 or APM 671 (a member of the Health Sciences Comp Plan). This distinction was not made clear during the presentation, so please refer to the following APMs for the correct rules:

For faculty covered by APM 671 (members of the Health Sciences Comp Plan), the policy states:
671-14 c. Faculty on Leave
Faculty who engage in professional activities while on approved leaves with pay such as sabbatical and vacation must comply with requirements for disclosure, prior approval, and annual reporting for outside professional activities. These activities, as well as professional activities performed during the evenings and weekends, count toward the annual time limits and earnings approval threshold. School Implementing Procedures must describe the requirements for disclosure, prior approval, and annual reporting for outside professional activities and earnings during periods of leave without pay.

For faculty covered by APM 025, the policy states:
c. Faculty on leave
(3) Vacation
Faculty on approved vacation are not subject to the disclosure, prior approval, annual reporting requirements, or time limits described in APM - 025-8-b for outside professional activity performed during the vacation period.

IN ADDITION, we apologize that this video record is missing the first seven minutes due to an audio-visual error.  Please refer to the slides for the information addressed during the first seven minutes of the presentation.
