Required Ethics Course

In 2008, the University System of Georgia’s Board of Regents approved a USG Ethics Policy. You can view the new Ethics Policy at  As part of this effort to enhance ethical conduct by everyone working for and with USG institutions, all faculty and staff are required to take a course on ethical behavior in the workplace and pass the assessment that is a part of the course. The course is self-paced and will take 30 to 45 minutes for most people. New employees must complete the course within two months of the first day of employment. Because the course is offered in our online course system, GeorgiaVIEW, you can take the course anywhere and at any time you have access to a computer and the internet.
