In order to enhance Texas State University's reputation as an institution with the highest standards of ethics, honesty, and integrity, the university has implemented a compliance program for university faculty and staff.
In this context, compliance means understanding and adhering to all the rules, regulations, laws, and policies, both internal and external, that relate to faculty and staff positions. Our compliance program is designed to coordinate and disseminate information to faculty and staff that is necessary for the performance of their responsibilities. In addition, the compliance program helps protect the university from regulatory errors, omissions and failures by improving communication and information among members of the university community. It encourages staff to come forward to report instances of non-compliance and changes the compliance model from detect and correct to anticipate and prevent.
The university's compliance program provides faculty and staff with an awareness of the minimum required and encourages them to go beyond mere compliance to create a culture of ethics in all areas of their lives.
