Ethics and Integrity Program and Statement of Ethical Behavior

Policies and Quick Reference.

Gettysburg College is committed to operating with integrity and in compliance with all applicable federal and state laws, regulations and policies. Additionally, all employees are expected to always conduct themselves honestly and with a high degree of personal integrity. The mutual respect and collegiality that is gained as a result of adherence to these high standards encourages a positive and productive work environment. This not only involves sincere respect for the rights and feelings of others but also requires that employees refrain from behavior that might be harmful to themselves, their coworkers and the College or might be viewed unfavorably by the public in both their professional and personal lives. To maintain the integrity of Gettysburg College and to protect the rights of its employees, its students, and the College itself, employees are expected to conduct themselves honestly, professionally, and ethically at all times.
