OUR Clemson

Inaugural Compliance & Ethics Week set to launch Oct. 10


Clemson University will host an inaugural Compliance & Ethics Week on main campus beginning Monday, Oct. 10. The week targets Clemson students, faculty and staff and is designed to raise awareness around compliance and ethics issues impacting the University community.

“We are incredibly excited to host our first Compliance & Ethics Week at Clemson,” said Associate Vice President and Chief Ethics & Compliance Officer Tracy Arwood. “Educating students, faculty and staff on our collective role in upholding the highest standards of ethical and lawful conduct in academic and business activities is critically important. We look forward to highlighting the great work of our many compliance partners by engaging with the campus community in fun and meaningful ways.”

Compliance & Ethics Week will focus on educating the campus community about speaking up through the safety hotline, ethical decision-making processes developed by the Rutland Institute for Ethics and standards of ethical conduct adopted by the Board of Trustees.

One of the featured daily events is entitled “Coffee with Compliance.” Join administrative leaders from the Office of Human Resources, Occupational and Environmental Safety, Title IX Office, International Services, English Language Programs and the Office of University Compliance & Ethics in face-to-face conversations over morning coffee or tea at various locations on and off main campus.

Additionally, officials will host educational tables at Carillon Garden, the North Green and in front of Vickery Hall throughout the week. Highlighted programs include Domestic Violence Awareness Month, Disability Employment Awareness Month, Fire Safety and Prevention Month, National Anti-Bullying Day, the Annual Ethics Day and the 50th anniversary of Title IX.
