presumed to have prospective effect as to all members of the College community.
Proposed changes will normally be discussed among the vice presidents and deans and
the Provost.

College will first be deducted from the gross income available before distribution. An
accurate accounting of all such costs shall be made available to the author/creator upon
request. The distribution of net proceeds (income less all costs including that of an
agency engaged to provide patent administration services) that is received from the
College-owned Intellectual Properties shall be shared equally between the creator and the
College absent agreement otherwise. The companies licensed to market or use

and logos shall not be used by individuals or entities in a manner that implies the College
endorsement or responsibility for particular activities, products, or publications involved,
for commercial purposes, or by any individual or group promoting itself, without the
express written permission of the Provost.
