Academic appointees may pursue remunerative outside activities that advance or communicate knowledge through interactions with industry or the community, and through consulting or professional opportunities. Such activities give the individual experience and knowledge valuable to teaching, research, and creative activities and/or provide a University related public service. Appointees should however undertake such activities in a manner consistent with the full performance of their primary University obligations. There are University regulations and guidelines governing the various types of remunerative outside activities set out in the summary table below.
Such regulations and guidelines are also applicable to non-academic appointees considering that (a) there may be remunerative professional services rendered by non-academic appointees to outside organizations [or person(s)] or business ventures undertaken by them, and (b) the engagement of such activities will help the appointee keep abreast of developments in his/her field and to maintain professional contacts and/or bring benefit to the University or the community.These regulations and guidelines providing for possible outside engagements are applicable to full-time appointees only. Non-full-time appointees should undertake non-CUHK engagements outside their agreed working hours at the University. Appointees in pursuing outside activities should always take care to ensure that there is not any conflict of interests and/or conflict of commitment, whether actual or perceived, with their roles and/or duties at the University.
