Ethics and Compliance Program and Hotline

University System of Georgia's Ethics and Compliance Program enhances compliance with state and federal regulations and minimizes misconduct by USG faculty, staff, administrators, vendors, contractors and members of the Board of Regents.

Those who are employed at public institutions are charged with the duty to behave ethically and professionally. It is our duty to avoid the appearance of impropriety, so that the public will not lose confidence in our stewardship of its resources. Employees should be aware of GGC's Ethics Policy.
