IV.    RECUSAL FROM BOARD DELIBERATIONS


      In addition to recusal from Board meetings of any trustee because of actual or potential conflict of interest (see Board Policy III, Trustee Conflict of Interest), recusal of University-affiliated trustees (the President an the faculty and student trustees) may also be appropriate under other circumstances such as where the trustee as a University constituent may be affected financially by a Board decision, where disclosure to the trustee may occur of information of a personal or private nature concerning another University constituent, or where the trustee’s participation might cause a legal privilege to be in jeopardy.
