Recommended Principles to Guide Academy-Industry Relationships

The reference for resolving the ethical dilemmas confronting today's higher education

From MOOCS and intellectual property rights to drug industry payments and conflicts of interest, this book offers AAUP policy language and best practices to deal with all the campus-wide challenges of today's corporate university:

  • Preserving the integrity of research and public respect for higher education.
  • Eliminating and managing individual and institutional financial conflicts of interest.
  • Maintaining unbiased hiring and recruitment policies.
  • Establishing grievance procedures and due process rights for faculty, graduate students, and academic professionals.
  • Mastering the complications of negotiations over patents and copyright.
  • Assuring the ethics of research involving human subjects.

  • In a time of dynamic change, Recommended Principles to Guide Academy-Industry Relationships offers an indispensable and authoritative guide to sustaining integrity and tradition while achieving great things in twenty-first century academia.

    "A magnificent document. It provides faculty, journalists, scientists, and policy makers with the information they need to confront and analyze this increasingly important problem . . . . , and to assure that long standing concerns for academic freedom, ethical integrity, and the traditional values of the university will have a fighting chance throughout the United States."--Gerald Markowitz, Distinguished Professor of History, John Jay College of Criminal Justice

    "The 56 General Principles provide a nearly constitutional template for clearer understanding of how academy and industry collaborate today, and how they may do so more effectively in the future. Not to be missed is an invaluable Appendix giving exact language to use in incorporating these recommendations into faculty handbooks and collective bargaining agreements."--Robert M. O’Neill, president emeritus of the University of Virginia and founding director of the Thomas Jefferson Center for the Protection of Free Expression
