How should I think about compliance and ethics in my day-to-day work activities?

Ask yourself the following questions before you embark on a new initiative or an unfamiliar activity:

1.     Is it governed by a law or other requirements? 

2.     Is there is a risk to the University if I am non-compliant? 

3.     Are there policies governing the activity?  

4.     Is there a University process that must be followed?  

5.     What do my instincts and values tell me? 

6.     Who has expertise and can provide me with guidance? 

Think of the Compliance and Ethics Program as a compass that points you toward the right course of action.
