UPDATE / CORRECTION [to the email of 9/6/19]
Academic exemptions will remain in effect for fall 2019. In other words, if you previously had an exemption it will remain in effect for the 2019-2020 academic year.
It will not be in effect in fall 2020, at which time you would have to apply for a new exemption.

Subject: JCOPE – Re: Rescinded Academic Exemptions
1. JCOPE Rescinds ALL Academic Exemptions
Recently the University was informed by the Joint Commission On Public Ethics (JCOPE) that all exemptions for Academic Filers have been rescinded.
This means that if you previously had an exemption and would like to regain that status, you are required to apply for a new exemption. Applications submitted to JCOPE will be reviewed and a determination will be made on a case-by-case basis. (This relates to the emailed announcement of 9/3/19 available here.)
2. ALSO: the requirement for JCOPE Ethics Training is not applicable to members of the adjunct faculty.
