The UF COI Program will serve as a central hub for UF employees seeking information about their disclosure responsibilities pursuant to federal, state, and institutional laws and policies. Working in conjunction with campus partners, the UF COI Program will communicate clear disclosure guidelines and appropriately steer the professional growth of UF employees engaged in important teaching, research, and public service activities. In carrying out its mission, the UF COI Program aims to foster a culture that embraces professional ethics as an essential component of institutional integrity.
