Annual Scholarly Capacity

Each year all faculty must complete the Annual Scholarly Capacity Form which can be accessed here: 

Scholarly Capacity Disclosure Form


 "Scholarly capacity" means any pedagogical, academic, artistic, educational or scholarly activity performed by a State official for the institution of higher education that employs or has appointed such State official.  This form must be submitted pursuant to N.J.A.C. 19:61-6.10(a), which requires a State official serving in a scholarly capacity to annually disclose to his/her Department head any travel, subsistence or entertainment expenses, honoraria, academic prizes or other things of value related to activities performed in a scholarly capacity received in the prior academic year (July 1st through June 30th). Any benefit received related to your State position, and any outside activity performed, while not acting in a scholarly capacity, must still be reported pursuant to your institution's procedures, and on the forms required by the State Ethics Commission. Enter "N/A" in any category in which you did not receive benefits while acting in scholarly capacity during the covered academic year.
