Conflict of Interest

The COI Program

The Conflict of Interest  (COI) Program manages all Financial Interest Disclosures for the Penn State research community and University Officials and provides support to both the Individual and Institutional Conflict of Interest Committees.

The COI Program also maintains the University's individual and institutional conflict of interest policies, guidelines, and procedures and strives to ensure compliance with all federal regulations and University policies. The Staff in the COI Program is available to all members of the Penn State community to provide guidance and education on conflicts of interest by answering individual inquiries, meeting with faculty, staff, and/or students, and presenting educational COI workshops and trainings throughout the year.


We would like to know how the COI Program can better serve you. Please help us by completing our survey. It will take approximately one minute.
