Accountability, Ethics and Internal Controls (Online)


Course Description

Increasingly we are required to engage in complex decision-making with no clear policy or law to guide us. This online course is designed to enhance understanding of why university policies and procedures exist and the importance of UC institutional values in decision-making. The case studies and examples are designed to enhance application of UC values in deciding between valid options that go beyond "legal vs. illegal." Resources will be identified to help participants determine if departmental duties are properly separated and if departmental procedures support ethical decision-making. Participants will also learn what to look for if they suspect or discover departmental fraud or misuse.
