Nov. 6-10 is National Ethics and Compliance Week.
We are called upon to make ethical decisions every day in our interactions, in our academic and professional pursuits, and in fulfilling our ongoing responsibilities. Our ethical decisions are reflected to our community through our actions. Compliance measures our ethical commitment to civility, integrity, and lawfulness. It demonstrates — individually and collectively — our desire to live our core values and shows our commitment to our culture.
The Office of Accountability and Compliance (OAC) is committed to UMB and its community. During National Ethics and Compliance Week, the OAC is committed to raising awareness and promoting thoughtfulness in our daily decision-making and interactions.
OAC is Open, Accessible, and Collaborative
This year, our National Ethics and Compliance Week activities will revolve around the importance of responsibility. In fulfilling our responsibilities, UMB and each of us become the leaders our core values call upon us to be.
All members of the UMB community are responsible for pursuing excellence in our work and our studies. We are responsible for obtaining and disseminating knowledge, all while acting professionally, respectfully, and courteously to one another. We have a responsibility to ourselves and others to demonstrate our leadership by working collaboratively to achieve great things.
Join OAC during National Ethics and Compliance Week as we demonstrate our commitment through a series of events, including:
• OAC meet and greet on Nov. 6 from 10:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the SMC Campus Center.
• HRPO panel discussion on responsibility in human subjects research on Nov. 8.
• EthicsCaching contest (no GPS needed!) on Nov. 10.
Additional information on the panel discussion and ethics event will be available at the meet and greet on Nov. 6.
You also can find OAC on UMBConnect to participate in our discussions on accountability, compliance, ethics, and promoting our culture of commitment.
We look forwarding to seeing you there!
