If you’re seriously interested in making a significant contribution to our university, you’ll want to pay attention to the concept of ethical leadership. Why? Because ethical work cultures have been proven to produce or stimulate more favorable job attitudes among employees, greater camaraderie and cooperation, less deviant behavior, more reporting of suspected and actual violations and improved results in achieving the organization’s mission. Not a bad list.
Each calendar year, University Compliance, Ethics, and Risk prepares and issues the UCF IntegrityLine annual report. During the 2019 calendar year, the UCF IntegrityLine received a total of 188 reports, 187 containing allegations of suspected misconduct or ethical concerns and one test case. This article features a summary of this years UCF IntegrityLine annual report.
