IntegrityStar – November 2022 | See Previous Editions
UCF Compliance & Ethics Newsletter
Every two years University Compliance, Ethics, and Risk conducts a Compliance and Ethics Culture Survey to gauge the overall ethical culture at UCF. The office benchmarks the results against prior years’ results and uses the results to identify opportunities for improvements to the program including additional training and awareness.
With the UCF office of Operational Excellence and Assessment Support, the office conducted its fourth Compliance and Ethics Culture Survey in 2022. All UCF employees were invited through a series of emails to participate via a link to the online survey March 1, 2022 through April 6, 2022. The 2022 survey was available in English and Spanish and of the 12,268 employees invited, 2,171 employees (17.7%) responded. Read the results here.Read More
