Delegation Criteria
The Directors/President are responsible for managing their campuses in conformance with the referenced policies, regulations and codes.

When evaluating the outside activities, the Director/President should consider whether the outside activities will substantially interfere with the performance of duties or, if they do interfere, whether it is in the best interest of the university or contributes to a significant enhancement of the employee professional standing and competence.
