3.18 Interinstitutional Cooperation/Research
All centers, institutes, and major research facilities shall establish and maintain mechanisms for interinstitutional cooperation and collaboration whenever an overlap in research interests exists. These mechanisms shall include provisions to inform persons at other Regent institutions of research being undertaken, to promote collaboration, and to stimulate the shared use of research equipment. Depending on the institute's or center's governing structure, representation on advisory/controlling bodies shall be tendered to persons in the other Regent institutions if research overlap exists. Faculty members doing research in related areas at other Regent institutions may be offered adjunct appointments or associate memberships in the center or institute.
