Letter from the President Dear Colleagues: The University of Connecticut is committed to assuring the highest standard of integrity in all aspects of University life and in all University and University-sponsored activities. While this goal is simply stated, its attainment requires concerted effort on the part of all members of the University community, particularly faculty, administrators and staff.
The University of Connecticut Board of Trustees is the body that is ultimately responsible for ensuring full compliance. A key ingredient of an effective Compliance Program is the establishment of a Code of Conduct.
This Code of Conduct was developed with input from faculty, administrators and staff. To set the basic standards of workplace behavior that the University expects of all faculty, administrators and staff.
To assure that faculty, administrators and staff understand their shared responsibility for keeping the University in full compliance with all applicable laws, regulations and policies. Please read the Code carefully, and take all steps necessary to apply its standards. A key element in assuring University-wide compliance is a system for reporting Code of conduct and policies for violations.
In an institution this large and active, there may be areas of confusion; regrettably, there may also be instances in which individual behavior does not meet appropriate ethical expectations. Any University employee who observes a possible violation of law, regulation, policy or approved procedure has an obligation to report it.
While a key element is reporting inappropriate activity, I want to emphasize that the most important element of any compliance or ethics program is working cooperatively to assure a positive climate of openness and integrity.
Great universities function as true communities in which faculty, administrators, staff and students collaborate to achieve common goals. That holds true for instruction, research, public engagement, service and, at the most fundamental level, ethical compliance.
I want to thank you for understanding and adhering to these standards, and for your commitment to the highest level of ethical conduct in fulfillment of our institutional responsibilities. These values are essential and enduring tenets of our organization.
A statement of these values, while reiterating concepts already well understood, is helpful in outlining the context in which our Code will operate.
Please be advised that violation of the standards in this Code of Conduct may result in appropriate disciplinary measures up to and including dismissal.
