Whether current policies governing external consulting during institutional time are adequate is being discussed both within and outside of academe. Many institutions are presently reviewing their consulting policy statements to determine their adequacy in light of pressures to more closely monitor outside work by their faculty. Faculty, on the other hand, are concerned with what they see as a movement to restrict consulting opportunities. A review of institutional documents shows most large universities do not address in a formal, written manner many important considerations of the consulting arrangement. As a result, confusion and confrontation over "control" of noninstitutional work for compensation is present.
