Message from the President
Utah State University's success depends on our working together in an atmosphere of trust and respect. In the end, reaching our collective potential comes down to the actions and decisions made on an individual level. All of us have a responsibility to the institution, its stakeholders, our colleagues throughout USU and to ourselves to understand our roles and fulfill them competently and ethically.
This Ethics Guide is designed to provide USU administrators with a framework within which to conduct university business. It also contains resources and references to assist employees in making good decisions that will further USU's interests and enhance our academic environment.
We invite you to take the time to become familiar with this Guide. It is available both in print form and on the university's website at http://www.usu.edu/provost/faculty/professional_conduct/code_of_conduct/doc/manual.pdf. Ethics training is also available to employees through the Human Resources Office and the Office of Compliance Assistance. We invite you to take advantage of these training opportunities.
Thank you for your service to USU and your efforts to safeguard its reputation for excellence and integrity.
Noelle E. Cockett
