Reaffirmation of Commitment to Ethics and Compliance

The Texas A&M University System is committed to the highest ethical and compliance standards in all operational areas.  Activities undertaken by system faculty, staff and students should be conducted in accordance with strict ethical principles and in compliance with federal and state laws and regulations, system standards and other applicable requirements.  We must promote an organizational culture that encourages ethical conduct and a commitment to compliance.

The Risk, Fraud and Misconduct Hotline is independently operated and available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week by calling 1-888-501-3850.  There is also a link on the bottom of all System websites.  The hotline is a telephone and web-based reporting system operated by a third party vendor that provides a way to anonymously report instances of misconduct.
