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.

Military 101 An Introduction to the American Armed Forces
Army Veteran Dr. Barbara Gannon and Marine Corps Veteran John Grande will host this workshop which focuses on the history, structure, and current issues of the United States Military branches. Dr. Barbara Gannon is an Associate Professor in the History Department at UCF. An Army veteran herself, Gannon has published several critically acclaimed books focused on military history, veterans, and the American Civil War. John Grande is the Project Manager of the University of Central Florida Community Veterans History Project, a project focused on collecting veteran’s stories. He is also a four year veteran of the United States Marine Corps.
UCF joined 8 teams from nationally-selected institutions and Excelencia in Education in Washington, D.C. to engage in a session to continue work on this national project to examine institutional practices and outcomes aimed at accelerating Latino student college completion. During our time together we engaged in three core activities. The first was a meeting of trendsetting institutions framing their strategies for serving Latino students. Second was our annual celebration recognizing evidence-based practices significantly increasing Latino student success in higher education. The third convened practitioners, funders, and advocates as for Latino student success sharing and learning together what works and what more we may do together.
