Compliance and Ethics Program

The College’s Compliance and Ethics Program (“Compliance Program”) is designed to assist the College in achieving its financial, operational and strategic goals by assuring compliance with all applicable laws and agency regulations, auditor mandates, accreditation standards, external “best practice” recommendations, internal policies, and other relevant guidance. The Compliance Program will provide for coordination and documentation of existing and ongoing institutional compliance initiatives.

This program applies to all College trustees, officers, faculty, staff, student employees, students and volunteers carrying out duties related to compliance obligations of the College.

Code of Conduct

Reporting Non-Compliance

Wherever possible, we should report our concerns by talking with our supervisor or a College official who has responsibility for the area of concern, or by contacting the director of human resources, who will respond promptly and confidentially to the extent permitted by law. Concerns also may be raised anonymously using the College’s Compliance and Ethics Online Reporting Form. All inquiries and all good-faith reports of suspected non-compliance, regardless of whether they are substantiated and regardless of the method of reporting, can be made free from fear of retaliation in accordance with the College’s Whistleblower Policy.
