IntegrityStar UCF Compliance & Ethics Newsletter UCF Compliance & Ethics Newsletter

A message from Rhonda L. Bishop

We are so excited to share with you in this sixth edition of the IntegrityStar, the long awaited UCF Employee Code of Conduct. I have to say that this project has been a labor of love for my office. It took years to develop as we collaborated with our compliance partners and executive leadership, but we believe that the work and the wait were worth it. We achieved our goal in capturing the most important UCF regulations, policies, and procedures in one place, and providing a guiding document that employees can use to navigate the rules and the ethical hurdles that are inevitable in any workplace. Please take a few minutes to read the short article on the new UCF Employee Code of Conduct, access and read the Code in its entirety on our website at, and register for the online training. Once you’ve had the chance to do that, we hope you’ll write to us at and tell us what you think.

It has been a year since our last update on the UCF IntegrityLine, and I think you will find the article in this edition interesting, particularly as it relates to the connection to the new UCF Ethical Standards contained in the UCF Employee Code of Conduct.

Compliance and Ethics week is coming up again this November. It will be celebrated nationally during November 6-9, 2017, and University Compliance, Ethics, and Risk has scheduled activities to raise awareness on compliance and ethics topics. Be sure to read the article for more information on the activities to see how you can participate.

Please also read about the important compliance work supporting research and the individuals we are recognizing for their outstanding contributions to compliance and ethics.

As always, we welcome your suggestions for future topics and your feedback. Please write to us at
