Ethics and Compliance
UCCS, a premier comprehensive undergraduate and specialized graduate research university, provides students with academically rigorous and life-enriching experiences in a vibrant university community. We advance knowledge, integrate student learning with the spirit of discovery, and broaden access to higher education for the benefit of southern Colorado, the state, nation and world. UCCS has adopted a set of values to which it is committed, including specifically a commitment to the value of integrity and an expectation that each member of the campus community will engage in ethical behavior. The CU Board of Regents developed the Principles of Ethical Behavior as the underlying expectations regarding the conduct and activities of university employees. The University has also developed a Code of Conduct which states its commitment to upholding the highest ethical, professional, and legal standards.
The University has adopted an institutional Ethics and Compliance Program that is intended to support a culture of ethics and compliance within the University community. An effective compliance program promotes the achievement of University goals and helps avoids the program disruption and financial loss that can accompany compliance failures. Faculty, staff, and students who work on behalf of UCCS are responsible for conducting themselves within the law and in keeping with the ethical standards of the University and the State of Colorado. This website is intended to assist University employees and students in the performance of that responsibility by providing information about compliance-related resources and materials.
