New UCF Employee Code of Conduct

University Compliance, Ethics, and Risk is very pleased to announce the UCF Employee Code of Conduct now available online compliance.ucf.edu.

There are many laws, regulations, UCF policies, and ethical standards that we, as employees, are already expected to follow. The purpose of the UCF Employee Code of Conduct is to provide one guiding document that highlights many of these requirements and that can serve as a resource for employees when faced with questions or ethical dilemmas.

 

All employees are required to follow the UCF Employee Code of Conduct. Online training is available to assist employees in becoming familiar with the provisions of the Code of Conduct.
