For employees who have been here longer than 1 year, we are now offering a “Core 4 renewal" discussion group. The “Core 4” includes the four compliance modules that each employee must take every two years: CW 101 Introduction to Compliance & Ethics, CW 121 Sexual Harassment, CW 123 Equal Employment Opportunity, and CW 170 IT Security Awareness. If you’re tired of the “same old, same old” and want to get all or most of your compliance training done at the same time, try the online discussion groups in Canvas instead! Class will be open for 2 weeks from July 19-August 1 and you can contribute at your own pace. As discussions are on-line, there will be reading and writing components.
Participants will examine news articles to learn about compliance and ethics in higher education. The session will highlight supervisors’ role in cultivating ethical behavior and supporting compliance as well as the importance of and ways to maintain an ethical workplace. Participants will also become familiar with the role and function of University Compliance Services. Attendees will also receive credit for CW 101, a class required for all employees every two years.September 16, FAC 328, 9:00AM - 10:30AM
The course will cover the concepts and importance of both compliance and ethics, and the compliance competencies needed by administrative professionals. Resources to access policies and the process for reporting non-compliance will be discussed. Examples and causes of non-ethical behavior will also be presented. If you are an administrative professional and a supervisor, you may choose to attend the class that works best for your schedule. Attendees will also receive credit for CW 101, a class required for all employees every two years.October 6, FAC 328, 10-11:30AM
