Ethics 101: New training works to promote integrity

 

MSU Public Affairs

 

With the Monday start of the fall semester, Mississippi State University unveils a new training program, reporting system and policy changes to better promote ethics and integrity at the university. 

 


"At Mississippi State, we take seriously our commitment to being responsible and ethical, and I believe each member of our community is a part of that effort," said MSU President Mark Keenum. 

 


MSU''s departments of internal audit and human resources management, along with the general counsel''s office, recently conferred with an authority in the field to develop content for broad-based training related to ethical situations that might be encountered and how they relate to applicable laws, regulations and policies. 

 


Beginning Sept. 15 for non-academic administrators, human resources staff members will begin online training and, later, class discussions of case studies. 

 


In addition to training, a new ethics reporting system officially approved by Keenum is providing a way to anonymously address potential issues of waste, fraud or unethical actions. The new Web-based MSU Ethics Line is the first independently operated reporting service at a Mississippi public university. 

 


The reporting Web site, www.msstate.ethicspoint.com, is independently operated by EthicsPoint of Lake Oswego, Ore., a company serving more than 2,000 clients nationwide, including more than 300 colleges and universities. Anonymous reports also may be made by telephoning toll-free 877-310-0424.
