Financial Conflict of Interest

Southern Miss requires that all full-time faculty members complete a financial conflict of interest disclosure form annually.  Any change in status regarding financial relationships must be updated within 30 days of the change.  Additionally, all researchers working on PHS funded grants, including staff and students, must complete an updated disclosure at the time of application.
