17.17(3) Royalties from Course Materials

Faculty members should not profit financially from recommending or requiring the purchase of course materials by their students. Faculty members who would otherwise receive royalties or other remuneration from the purchase of books or materials which they recommend or require in courses they teach should either refund the money to the students or make other arrangements to avoid profiting from their students' use of the materials (such as transferring it to the University or one of its units, or to The University of Iowa Foundation).
