Compliance & Ethics Week 2020

Continuing the tradition of encouraging Islanders to lead with utmost integrity, Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi will be participating in Corporate Compliance & Ethics Week, which takes place Nov. 2-6. The event is organized each year by the Society of Corporate Compliance and Ethics & Health Care Compliance Association (SCCE & HCCA).

Corporate Compliance & Ethics Week began in May 2005 as a way to help members of SCCE & HCCA to increase awareness of compliance and ethics issues at their organizations. It has since grown to an annual event that is celebrated around the world.

This new initiative is an extension of the University’s ongoing compliance and ethics program, which is managed by the Department of Risk and Compliance. This year’s theme is, “Awareness, Recognition, Reinforcement.”

The University will host a series of workshops via WebEx starting on Monday, Nov. 2, through Friday, Nov. 6.

The Texas A&M University System has a code of conduct that all employees are expected to follow.  The code calls on employees to “conduct themselves in a manner that strengthens the public’s trust and confidence by adhering to the following principles:

(a) honesty, accountability, transparency, respect and trust;
(b) integrity of the highest caliber;
(c) conduct that is indisputable and beyond reproach;
(d) openness and fairness; and
(e) commitment to compliance."

Campuswide compliance and ethics education, held through the year, allows our University to roll out new and updated compliance and ethics program policies and reinforce with employees their compliance and ethics obligations. Participation in the Ethics & Compliance Week gives an additional opportunity to shine a spotlight on the importance of compliance and ethics and boost compliance culture.
