Annual Disclosure for Faculty
Reporting Period January 2010-August 2011
As per the requirements established by the New Jersey State Ethics Commission for institutions of public higher education in New Jersey, Rutgers University regular salaried faculty members (full-time faculty except teaching assistants, graduate assistants, co-adjutants, post-doctoral fellows, and part-time lecturers) acting in a scholarly capacity must make an annual disclosure of payments for honoraria or academic prizes and for expense reimbursements (if any) from non-Rutgers sources.
No disclosure is required for any payments from Rutgers including salary or expenses. Note that you do NOT have to include any reimbursement or extra compensation you may have received via grants and/or funding for trips or travel that was routed through the University.
This online form should be used to disclose payments made directly to the Rutgers employee from non-Rutgers sources. Typically, the payments are made for activities that occur away from campus at the request of an outside party (e.g., receipt of an honorarium or expense reimbursement for speaking at or attending a conference). This form is NOT to be used to report outside activities.
Acting in a “scholarly capacity” means any pedagogical, academic, artistic, educational or
similar or other scholarly activity performed by a Rutgers employee. This chart may help you identify your scholarly activity. Examples of actions taken in a scholarly capacity may include any of the following or similar activities:
1. Attending, participating in, or making presentations at colloquia, seminars, conferences,
or similar gatherings.
2. Developing scholarly work in the form of books or journal articles, media productions,
and similar works.
3. Serving as a member or as an officer of a professional or scholarly organization.
4. Serving on or advising a federal, state, or local government agency committee, panel,
commission or a not-for-profit organization.
5. Acting in an editorial capacity for a journal or other publication.
6. Reviewing journal or book manuscripts, or grant or contract proposals, or
participating in accreditation or other peer review activities.
All regular full-time faculty should log on here and submit this form by no later than December 5, 2011. The completed forms shall be kept on file for a period of five years at Rutgers as well as forwarded to the New Jersey State Ethics Commission. The Commission makes records kept on file with the Commission available to the public upon request.
