Ethics in the Organization

Ethics in the Organization

Creating and sustaining an ethical corporate culture.

Organizations that lack a strong ethical culture may be vulnerable to unethical employee behavior. Unethical employee behavior can be as minor as time wasting and as severe as corruption. The Daniels Fund Ethics Initiative Collegiate Program at UCCS COB programs events that focus on the development of an ethical corporate culture and the consequences of unethical behavior.

The UCCS Ethics & Compliance program supports a culture of ethics and compliance within the University community. See: or email mail:
