AROUND CAMPUS
Annual Compliance Campaign 
OUE's deadline is April 1st


Ethical behavior is essential to Georgia Tech's successful operation. Our strict adherence to ethical principles satisfies federal and state laws and - equally important - maintains the public trust.

This is why all employees are required to participate in the Annual Compliance Campaign. It can be completed on a desktop or laptop and does not have to be finished at one time. Please note that the entire process, from start to finish, is expected to take no more than 45 minutes. ( LINK )
