Staff Rights in Intellectual Property

"Professional staff includes but is not limited to administrative staff (such as deans, directors, and vice-presidents) and technical staff, non-faculty researchers, teaching assistants and others not covered by a collective bargaining agreement." (Board Policy 3.26, Part 3, Subpart N)

The policy recognizes that professional staff own intellectual property rights in certain scholarly works, encoded works, and personal works, and identifies several instances where a professional staff member's basic ownership rights may be modified by agreement or other factors.
